Vulture Fund
A fund that buys securities in distressed investments, such as High-Yield bonds in or near Default, or equities that are in or near Bankruptcy.
    
It is a type of Limited Partnership that invests in depressed property, usually Real Estate, aiming to profit when prices rebound.

Even highly leveraged firms may be targeted if there is a chance that the owners Will not be able to make all required Debt payments. As the name implies, these funds are like circling vultures patiently waiting to pick over the remains of a rapidly weakening company. The goal is High returns at bargain prices. Some people have looked down upon Hedge funds that operate like vulture funds, which have preyed on the cheap Debt of struggling companies and forced these companies to pay it back, plus Interest.
