Are all hedge funds hedged?
Asked by Julie Scuderi

Answer By HedgeCo Developer (Investor)

No. Not all hedge funds are hedged. Many are simply long stocks, and may even use leverage. One must ascertain on a case by case basis, therefore, whether a fund hedges, how, and how much. This is absolutely crucial to understanding a fund's performance. Without this information, one cannot gauge how much risk produced its return.
