Hedge funds are one of the fastest growing investment products in Canada with assets under management increasing almost six-fold since the late 1990s. Despite this popularity, many financial advisors are unsure about the suitability of hedge funds for their clients and how these products fit into their clients' portfolios. This is because there are many different types of hedge fund strategies, and some of them can be quite complex.
