Comments of David A. Vaughan for the SEC Roundtable on Hedge Funds
"Hedge fund" is an expression believed to have been first applied in 1949 to a fund managed by Alfred Winslow Jones. 1 Mr. Jones's private investment fund combined both long and short equity positions to "hedge" the portfolio's exposure to movements in the market.

The following is a selection of definitions and descriptions of the term "hedge fund" showing the diversity of views among commentators.   "The term 'hedge fund' is commonly used to ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

This is a potentially complicated question, despite the lax regulations on hedge funds. The best bet is to hire an attorney at a firm with an Asset Management group or something similar. Recent SEC rules, which have been struck down by one Federal court but which aren't quite dead yet, ...
