The industry began in as a tool to help investors diversify their portfolios and provide returns that were uncorrelated to the equity market. The industry’s investors must meet basic requirements defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission prior to investing in .

    The hedge fund industry, on the other hand, is considerably smaller, only recently surpassing the $ trillion mark in total assets under management. Both mutual funds and hedge funds are similar, in that both use a professional money manager to invest a pool of funds in a diversified portfolio of investments.   Nice overview of the hedge fund industry.
