The year was 1999. Bill Clinton was in the White House, Ricky Martin was on the radio, and Kathryn McDonald was in Orinda, Calif. learning to hate the term "irrational exuberance." "That was a pretty difficult time," recalls McDonald, then a senior analyst with AXA Rosenberg Funds. As one of the first to offer a "market neutral" mutual fund to investors under the $1 million net worth threshold, McDonald's company couldn't have been more out of sync with the times.

The confidence game
When the private market fears that the government is running high deficits that it won't be able to repay, interest rates rise. It's the market's way of charging us for the increased risk. But interest rates on U.S. debt are not rising. That's a problem for people who think the deficit is a major issue: You're asking the government to go on a diet, but at the moment, it's not gaining any weight, and is in fact losing some. So we're seeing the rise of a new argument: Companies and consumers aren't spending because they're scared off by government borrowing.

Market Neutral Funds
t's hard to remain neutral about market-neutral investing strategies, the latest fad to emerge in the mutual-fund industry. "It's an exciting opportunity for fund investors," gushes Gerard Breitner, president of Manhattan's ExComp Asset Management, an investment adviser. Simply put, market-neutral funds aim to deliver above-market returns with lower risk by hedging bullish stock picks with an equivalent, but diversified, number of bearish, or short, bets. Some income is also generated from the interest earned by placing the cash proceeds of the short sales in a money-market account. But, make no mistake, ...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Can anyone explain to me, in layperson's terms, what a hedge fund is?
The first hedge fund was created by A.W. Jones in 1949 and had a strategy that today would be termed "equity market-neutral"; the fund bought stocks it expected to outperform and shorted stocks it expected to underperform.  In other words, the fund hedged away its market risk (hence, the term "hedge fund").  The fund was structured as a limited partnership, was available only to accredited investors (high net worth individuals and institutions), and was compensated strictly through performance fees (20% of total return delivered to investors). Over time, other funds developed other strategies (many of which actually do ...
