A fund of hedge funds (“FoHF”) is an investment vehicle that offers its investors exposure to a portfolio of hedge funds selected by the investment manager of the fund. The investment manager uses his/her knowledge, diligence and expertise to select and manage the hedge fund portfolio, saving his/her investors from the need and the operational and resource commitments to do so. In implementing their investment strategy, FoHFs often utilize financing transactions for various purposes, among them to provide leverage and liquidity.
