About

Wikipedia defines a hedge fund as an investment fund open to a limited range of investors that undertakes a wider range of investment and trading activities in addition to traditional long-only investment funds, and that, in general, pays a performance fee to its investment manager.  Every hedge fund has its own investment strategy that determines the type of investments and the methods of investment it undertakes.  Hedge funds, as a class, invest in a broad range of investments including shares, debt and commodities.

And Naked could mean a couple things in the financial community, but here it just means that we don’t hide anything or limit our audience to $500K+ account holders.
