Investopedia explains 'Hedge-Like Mutual Fund'


Hedge-like mutual funds can use many different alternative strategies to be considered hedge-like. For example, a hedge-like mutual fund may employ a long-short strategy, or a market neutral strategy in order to achieve better than benchmark returns. These funds are not typically able to use excess leverage in their strategies due to their regulatory status under the SEC, whereas hedge funds are not under the same restrictions.
