Hedge funds and mutual funds

Mutual funds and hedge funds both pools investor's money into one larger, centrally-managed set of assets.
The main difference is in legal structure and regulation. In India mutual funds are heavily regulated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI)
Because they are unregulated, hedge funds are not open to the general public. Generally only high net worth individuals and institutional investors are allowed to invest in them.

You can invest in these funds online through a number of investment companies. Some of them are HDFC, ICICI, Birla Sun life and Reliance
