Hedge funds usually require a high minimum investment, and are managed by professionals charging management and performance-based fees.

  • Single Fund – A single fund with multiple users.
  • Multiple Fund – One or more fund accounts managed by an Investment Manager. Each Fund account can be owned by a separate legal entity and is credit-managed separately.
  • Allocation Fund – An allocation account for trade executions that allows for end of day give-up of trades to accounts at third-party prime brokers.
