The Ten Largest Hedge Funds in the World

June 23, 2012 James Heinsman Tops

The popular perception concerning hedge funds in general is that they are a risky business limited to only the wealthiest investors. The truth about hedge funds is slightly more complex. Hedge funds are under constant scrutiny and actively managed with an eye towards higher than ordinary market returns. Most hedge funds are only available to a controlled number of investors, and often require investors to have a minimum net worth of one million dollars, and usually more. Analysts estimate that among the world’s 200 biggest hedge funds approximately $700 billion in assets are under management.

Recent observers have ranked the following hedge funds as the 10 largest in the world:

1.    Bridgewater Associates
2.    Man Group
3.    JP Morgan Asset Management
4.    Brevan Howard Asset Management
5.    Och-Ziff Capital Management
6.    Paulson & Co.
7.    BlackRock Advisors
8.    Winton Capital Management
9.    Highbridge Capital Management
10.  BlueCrest Capital Management
