“Because they are open only to wealthy people and institutional investors, hedge funds have long been exempt from the kind of close regulation and public disclosure requirement imposed on mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, annuities and other investments open to everyone. And hedge funds have wider investment options, using short sales, leverage and bets on commodities and derivatives that many other investment pools are not allowed to use. But the current financial crisis has put a spotlight on systemic risk amplified by leveraged investors although hedge funds were not the primary cause of this current mess." (Wharton)
