    Mutual Funds
What's the difference between a mutual fund and a hedge fund?
86% of people found this answer helpful

Mutual funds allow you to invest in a basket of publicly traded securities run by an investment manager. In some rare cases they can own private placements in illiquid companies, but for the most part, they are responsible for selecting publicly traded securities, stock, bonds, etc. You can very easily buy mutual funds in a brokerage or retirement account. Fees are usually around 1%.

Hedge funds are private investment companies for accredited ($1M+ net worth) investors. Hedge funds can own anything, public securities, private securities, mines in Chile, real estate, even bitcoins, etc. You can't buy into a hedge fund via a brokerage or retirement account and most won't accept an investment of less than $250,000 to start. Most hedge funds are short term profit focused which can cause large tax bills for individual investors, when all of the gains are short term capital gains, personal tax rates are much higher. Hedge funds can be much better for institutional investors because they don't have to pay short term capital gains taxes. Fees are usually 2% on assets and 20% of performance.
