Jones Model
A new investment approach credited to Alfred Winslow Jones. In 1949 he created what is generally regarded as the first hedge fund. Unlike traditional long-only mutual funds, the Jones model involved a limited partnership that employed a long/short investment strategy—thus hedging the portfolio against market fluctuations. Jones targeted absolute returns rather than a return that was correlated to the broad stock market.
