Facing shrinking assets and wary investors, several hedge funds have lowered their high barriers of entry and opened up hedge-fund-like vehicles that cater to retail investors, according to Fortune Magazine. AQR Capital Management and Turner Investment Partners both launched their first mutual funds earlier this year and Bull Path Capital Management followed suit when it launched a long-short equity mutual fund in June.

Entering the mutual fund market allows these hedge fund managers access to a pool of investors that is significantly less restricted than they are traditionally accustomed (ie accredited investors).
