Hedge funds are extremely aggressive entities that engage in margin and short-selling.  They are not investment companies, they are generally structured as a type of limited partnership.  REMIC stands for Real Estate Mortgage Investment conduit; they invest in real estate and mortgages rather than securities. The other two choices are common types of mutual funds.
