Funds that depend on ‘hedging’ techniques are quite popular among investors. These funds use different methods like short sale, arbitration, and so on to attain profit even in adverse markets. The investments are huge; these are exempt from various rules and regulations and are long time endeavors.
Now the question is who are the investors in such funds? In most states, there are certain criteria that you need to meet in order to become an investor. Only an accredited investor or a qualified purchaser is eligible for investing in these funds.
Who is an accredited investor? It can be an individual who owns at least $5 million in terms of assets or an organization that has a net worth of more than $1 million. Otherwise you can become an accredited investor in case you earn more than $200,000 annually and you can ensure similar income in future years.
And who is a qualified purchaser? If you or your business, a family-owned one, own investments worth $5 million (in the least), you may become an investor. Or if it’s a business with discretion in investments worth a minimum $25 million, it can invest in a New York hedge fund. A conglomeration of qualified purchasers forming a trust is also eligible as an investor in such a fund.
These are general conditions for qualifying as an investor in a hedge fund. Apart from these the state may impose its own regulations as well. It is best to check for all details before you become an investor in this type of funds.
