Please submit only sites in English that comply with the Category Description. Sites written in other languages should be submitted to an appropriate category of the World branch instead. Sites that are meant for users in a particular region belong to the Regional branch. If they appeal to global users but correspond to a region, we recommend you submit them to both this and a regional category. For fund-related sites that are not exclusively about ETFs and/or CEFs, please use Business/Investing/Funds/ or one of its subcategories.
A closed-end fund (CEF) is a fund that doesn't redeem and sell new shares continuously, as open-end funds do. It is traded at a stock exchange, as if it was ordinary stock, and usually sells at a premium or discount with respect to the value of its underlying assets (i.e. net-asset value o NAV). An exchange-traded fund (ETF) also trades in a stock exchange, like a CEF. But it is open-end, like a mutual fund, so it doesn't suffer price variations with respect to its NAV. ETFs and CEFs are the vehicles of choice for fund investors who operate through a stock broker.

Hedge funds are open-end funds of different kinds, that are traded through their management companies or intermediaries, and differ from mutual funds because they are not as heavily regulated, thus being suitable for large investments (in the order of 1 million US dollars or more). Hedge funds traditionally have used models of risk management intended to offset one form of risk by another form of risk reduction through, for example, instruments that do not correlate with each other. However, the popularity of the concept, as well as their acceptance outside of U.S. jurisdictions, has resulted in websites and businesses offering services, products or other resources concerning hedge funds that may not manage risk or may entail increased risk.

Mutual funds are a kind of open-end collective investment vehicles. "Open end" refers to their shares being created and redeemed continuously, according to the demand from investors. Shares of mutual funds are bought and sold through the fund companies and fund supermarkets, unlike exchange-traded and closed-end funds, which are traded at stock exchanges. Their difference with hedge funds is that they are heavily regulated, to make them adequate for smaller investors who don't have the amount of information and financial strength necessary to get involved in the strategies used by some hedge funds.
