Hedge funds are alternative channels of investment available only to specific investors with great financial offerings, such as institutions and individuals with significant assets.

Hedge funds began as vehicles of investment for only the very wealthy; these investment opportunities are not available to the general public. Nowadays the clients of hedge funds are mainly either wealthy individuals or large institutions, such as pension funds and universities.

Hedge fund managers estimate the risks for their clients in the stock markets.

The largest earnings in banking are available to hedge fund managers but they have to find clients with large funds, and build strong relationships of trust before money really starts flowing. Even then risk and luck play a huge part in whether they are a short term failure or long term success.

Hedge fund managers must work closely with their clients,ensuring that there are suitable levels of return, and lots of profit. Often hedge fund managers focus on specific areas of business to invest in, where they either have specialist knowledge, or is an area where they believe money is likely to be made.
