Bear Funds


Full Definition of Bear Funds


Funds that utilize short-selling methods to quickly make profits during a bear or declining market. These funds are usually made up of hedge funds and mutual funds. They are actively managed, and short individual stocks or inverse-index funds that short entire indexes. Bear funds revolve around the idea of playing with both sides of the market so that gains in the bear fund offset losses elsewhere in an investor’s portfolio. Bear funds are considered tactical investments, but usually end up being lousy long-term investments for investors.
