      • For a listing of hedge funds tracked in Bloomberg, type Hedge Fund, hit the HELP key, and then select #11 Funds from the menu.
      • For Portfolio holdings information type PSRT hit GO, and then fill in the relevant menu options.
      • For screening and other options, type HFND then hit GO.
      • More detail
    • Use Morningstar Direct
      • From the menu choose "New," then "Advanced Search," then "Hedge Fund".
      • To screen by strategy search by "Morningstar Category."
    • Alpha Institutional Investor has several rankings of hedge funds. Click on Research & Rankings and choose from available rankings such as The Hedge Fund 100. For access, please see staff at the reference desk in Baker Library. Individuals have to be logged in by staff.
