The Top 50 Healthcare, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Focused Hedge Fund list has been released, revealing that the top hedge funds now manage $58 billion in U.S. equity assets, up from $43 billion at the end of Q1. The top 50 hedge funds allocate $37.2 billion, or 64% of their total equity assets, to Healthcare, Pharma & Biotech stocks.

The Top Healthcare, Pharma & Biotech Hedge Fund List is once again led by Larry Robbins’ Glenview Capital Management and Samuel Isaly‘s OrbiMed Advisors. While Isaly’s OrbiMed Advisors is purely a healthcare focused investor, Robbins’ Glenview Capital is a global long/short equity investor that opportunistically makes big sector bets. New York based Baker Bros. Advisors LLC is the third largest hedge fund on the list, holding on to the third spot for the second consecutive quarter.

Some other notable hedge funds near the top of the hedge fund list include #11 Palo Alto Investors and #12 Brave Warrior Advisors. William Edwards’ growth focused Palo Alto Investors reported U.S. equity assets of $847 million, allocating 100% of its assets to Healthcare, Pharma & Biotech equities. The California-based firm focuses on healthcare and biotech stocks, typically concentrating its portfolio on 30 to 40 top stocks.

Glenn Greenberg’s Brave Warrior Advisors reported U.S. equity assets of $2.2 billion, dedicating 39% of its assets to Healthcare, Pharma & Biotech equities. Greenberg co-founded Chieftain Capital Management back in 1984 along with former partner John Shapiro. In 2009, the two founders split ways, with Shapiro retaining the Chieftain Capital Management for his hedge fund spin-off.

Ranking Methodology: The Top Healthcare, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Hedge Fund rankings are compiled on a quarterly basis using hedge fund firms’ overall U.S. equity assets under management.
