Abstract: In the recent years the alternative asset class of hedge funds is widely discussed in financial literature. On the one hand this is caused by an increasing demand on these unregulated investements and on the other hand it is caused by a lack of transparency concerning their investment strategies and investment instruments used. Especially this lack of knowledge gives reason to an unreflected adaption of the standard arguments of the attrativeness of a hedge fund investment, for expample like a high expected return is going together with a low to a moderate risk. Therefore this lack of knowledge gives reason to hope for a lasting substantial improvement of the return/risk-profile through the incorporation of such a investment.
