Earlier, HedgeTracker released its list of the largest US Equity Hedge Fund managers for 2009. This week we officially reveal all 25 managers that made the Top Hedge Fund list. As announced earlier, the top five hedge fund managers ranked by their total US Equity Assets at the end of 2009 included:

#1 David Shaw’s D.E. Shaw & Co with $26,701 mm
#2 Jim Simons’ Renaissance Technologies with $26,159 mm
#3 Robert Atchinson and Phil Gross’ Adage Capital Partners with $19,958 mm
#4 John Paulson’s Paulson & Co with $19,493 mm
#5 Eddie Lampert’s ESL Investments with $11,034 mm

While the top 5 hedge funds were the only ones managing more than $10 billion in US equity assets, the rest of the top ten hedge fund managers are all within striking distance. The second half of the top ten list is dominated by prodigies of Julian Robertson’s Tiger Management, including: #6 Steve Mandel’s Lone Pine Capital with $9,840 mm, #7 Lee S. Ainslie’s Maverick Capital with $8,987 mm, #8 Andreas Halvorsen’s Viking Global Investors with $8,270 mm and #10 Chris Shumway’s Shumway Capital Partners with $8,120 mm. Lone Pine Capital was one of the biggest risers on the list having added more than $2,200 mm in US equity assets over the 4th quarter of 2010.

At #9 is JPMorgan’s multi-strategy hedge fund subsidiary Highbridge Capital Management with $8,270 mm, while private equity firm Bain Capital’s hedge fund affiliate Brookside Capital is #11 with $8,086 mm.
