individual getting into a hedge fund
Asked by Robert Tibolt

Do opportunities exist for individuals to participate in a hedge fund with amounts of money in the $100,000 ballpark? Some of us might want to use such a portion of our portfolios to pursue higher potential gains (with commensurate risk, of course.) How does one identify such opportunities? Thank you.

Initial Contributions to Hedge Funds vary in size. Most funds require a much larger contribution, but it will depend on the specific fund and manager. Some managers may have flexible requirements in regards to capital deposits. As long as you are an accredited investor you are able to participate in hedge funds. The best way to identify these opportunities is to request marketing material from a hedge fund that you may be considering and contact the manager directly.
