The Top New York Hedge Funds had another tough quarter, as their combined assets dropped by -9.5%, or nearly 73.5 billion. Despite their overall woes, an elite group of 32 hedge funds saw their assets increase by more the $100 million each. Leading the top gainers were Renaissance Technologies Corporation, Zimmer Partners and Fore Research & Management. Overall, the top 100 NYC funds now manage just over $700 billion in equity assets.

Not surprisingly, Manhattan retained its position as the hedge fund capital of the world, housing 82 of the top 100 NYC funds. In fact, just two midtown zip codes (10022 and 10019) are home to 50 of the top 100 NYC area hedge funds.

Hedge funds with offices in 10022, which is home to a number of the industry’s powerhouses such as Renaissance Technologies, Third Point and Coatue Capital, manage 26.9% of the list’s total equity assets.

Philippe Laffont’s Coatue Capital is not only a top ranked NYC hedge fund, but it is also the #2 ranked Tech, Media and Telecom Hedge Fund, with $7.8 billion in TMT Assets.
