I don't know how much your HF would care if you traded air conditioning

there are some exceptions but in general the rules will be similar to a bank where you have a holding period, have to disclose everything, etc. I have heard of a couple of funds where everybody trades their PA right from there desk but its becoming more and more rare. Where I work there is a long minnimum holding period for any investments and they have robust disclosure rules...i basically have to get HR to approve anything I do and its a pain in the ass.

insider trading, my friend

would that be considered insider trading? I would think that it's just front-running since there isn't insider information.

1) talk to compliance

2) at my fund you had to jump through so many hoops, it wasn't feasible trading individual equities. They have name restrictions (which they can say no to without explanation) and holding period restrictions. 
3) if you're at a hedge fund you're technically already exposed to trading equities (assuming that's the asset class) by virtue of working for a fund. Why would you want to double down ?
