"How do I find information on mutual funds or hedge funds?"

answer: 

Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS) contains the CRSP Mutual Funds Annual, which covers more than 27,000 mutual funds, with data beginning in 1961.

 

The SEC web site has a searchable interface for mutual fund data.

 

Bloomberg provides mutual fund information, including Mutual Fund Performance (MF) and Mutual Fund Rankings (WMF). Additionally, it is an excellent source for hedge fund data. Start with their Hedge Fund Home Page (HFND) and get more information from their hedge fund rankings (WHF) and news (HEDN). Bloomberg is available only on campus at designated terminals. If you are off-campus, you can find some Bloomberg data on funds from their website.

 

The Lipper HedgeWorld Annual Guide contains individual fund performance data, as well as overview chapters concerning trends in hedge fund investing.
