Hedge fund usually manage money for institutional, pensions, endowments and some HNW clients (5mm + liquid). Obviously if they invested it would be a very small portion of overall portfolio

How HF have gotten returns has always been murky which is why I tend to avoid. For purposes of qualifying an investor or institution its the same requirements

Term life insurance question - I added the AICPA annual term policy last year. I've noticed personal finance media seems to push 10-20 year term and not discuss annual.

It was considerable cheaper up front and more at the end than 10yr per the fee schedule. If all goes according to plan I'll be at or close to FI within 5-7 years so not sure that I'd keep the full amount past then and would miss the benefit of the cheaper years at the end. Am I missing other risks of not doing 10+ term?
