Top 10 Hedge Funds oversee nearly $190 billion in assets
|September 5th, 2011
|The Top 10 Hedge Funds saw their US Equity assets drop by over $3.36 billion, or -1.7%, during the second quarter of 2011. Seven of the
top 10 hedge funds saw their US equity assets increase by a combined $5.5 billion, which was not enough to outweigh the dramatic decreases experienced by John Paulson’s Paulson & Co (-$5.2 billion), Carl Icahn’s Icahn Associates (-$1.85), and Ken Griffin’s Citadel Investment Group.|
Despite the significant decrease, Paulson & Co. retained its position as the largest US Equity hedge fund. John Paulson’s hedge fund firm, which has suffered from poor investment results in recent, reportedly managed $29,057 million in equity assets under management. Carl Icahn’s equity AUM decrease was large enough to drop the renowned shareholder activist from #7 on the list all the way out of the top ten to #12.
Clifford Asness’ AQR Capital Management LLC was the biggest gainer, seeing its assets rise by $1.3 billion to $13.8 billion. AQR Capital’s asset jump moved the Greenwich-based hedge fund up 2 notches on the ranking list to #6.
The second biggest gainer is D.E. Shaw & Co, which reported assets of $22,747 million, an increase of $983 million from the previous quarter.
The only newcomer to the top hedge fund list is Izzy Englander’s Millennium Management. Izzy’s New York City-based hedge fund reported $11,444 in US equity assets under management, up $797 million.
