With $9.7 billion in equity assets, ValueAct Capital Management has once again claimed the number one spot on the Top California Equity Hedge Fund List. ValueAct Capital Management, which saw its assets increase by nearly $900 million, is also notably a top technology, media and telecom investor, allocating nearly 55% of its assets to the sector.

Overall, the Top 50 Hedge Funds from California oversee a combined $69.4 billion in US equities. Over the last quarter, the top funds saw their assets increase by $1.34 billion, or 2.0%.

Number 2 on this quarter’s list is Mill Valley-based SPO Advisory Corp, with $7.4 billion in US equity assets. John Scully and William E. Oberndorf’s SPO Advisory Corp held onto the second spot for the second quarter in a row.

Rounding out the top three is Partner Fund Management with $5.2 billion in equity assets. Christopher James’s Partner Fund Management, which is based in San Francisco, saw its assets jump by $864 million over the quarter, which was enough to help it unseat Farallon Capital Management from the third spot.

Not surprisingly, thirty-five hedge funds on the Top California Hedge Fund List are based in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, while eleven funds call Los Angeles home.
