Bear Fund

Bear Fund

A mutual fund that invests predominately or exclusively in securities that tend to do well when most of the market is performing poorly and that do poorly when the market is performing well. Bear funds are intended to be a safe haven for investors in a down market. Examples of securities that may be found in a bear fund include stocks in budget retailers and fast food restaurants, since they tend to be stable and even experience some earnings growth during recessions.
