what do you call a managed fund that is neither a mutual fund nor a hedge fund?

A mutual fund is usually for retail clients. A hedge fund tends to be volatile. What would u call a managed fund that deals primarily with institutional clients, on a managed account basis? Its strategy tends to be alpha but volatility is usually on par with market risk. Any ideas?

How to create a hedge fund? How much money does a mutual fund managers make?

I would like to know if there are any websites or decent books out there with good information on the creation of a hedge fund? Also, is there money to be made if you run a mutual fund? Like a John Montgamery at Bridgeway or Bill Miller at Legg Mason. If so, how is it calculated? Thanks in advance.

what exactly is a hedge fund and is it better than index funds?

my dad has a couple mil, but says hedge fund is a horrible idea because of high commissions, and he says that ironically index funds actually outperform these hedges

can someone translate that into english and explain the difference, which one is better, and if my dad is right?
