Florida Hedge Fund & Private Equity Fund Losses
Hedge funds and private equity funds have become increasingly popular in recent years. If you turn on financial news or read investment publications, you are likely to see many stories about hedge funds and private equity. However, these stories often gloss over the tremendous risks associated with these type of investments.

Understanding Hedge Funds and Private Equity Funds
A hedge fund is a type of investment partnership through which investors seek to use atypical (at times risky) means to obtain especially large returns. Similarly, a private equity fund is a collective investment enterprise that is used to seek considerable gains. The biggest difference is that hedge funds typically aim to make gains by holding assets for a relatively short period of time, whereas private equity funds aim to make gains by taking big stakes in companies for extended periods of time.
Most investors are not eligible to invest in hedge funds or in private equity funds. To be able to invest in these complex, often risky funds, you generally must be an accredited investor. As explained by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), an accredited investor in an investor who has a sufficient net worth to be eligible to put their money into unregistered securities. Unregistered securities are generally risky because they are not subject to many of the SEC’s financial disclosure rules.
When Can You Recover Compensation for Hedge Fund/Private Equity Fund Losses
Hedge fund and private equity fund fraud claims can be especially challenging. If you believe that the hedge fund manager or private equity fund manager misrepresented or omitted any material facts related to the investment opportunity, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation for your investment losses. Misrepresentations can come in many different forms—from a hedge fund manager knowingly providing false financial income statements to investors to a private equity manager failing to disclose certain risks associated with the investment. If you are considering filing a hedge fund fraud claim, it is imperative that you seek help from an experienced investor loss attorney.
