HedgeTracker is excited to announce the release of the Top 75 Technology, Media & Telecom Focused Hedge Funds list - the newest addition to its selection of top hedge fund lists. The Top 75 TMT Hedge Fund List includes the top hedge funds with more than 50% of their current U.S. equity assets invested in Technology, Media & Telecom companies. This quarter’s list reveals that the top 75 TMT Funds currently manage almost $140 billion in equity assets, allocating $91 billion, or 65% of their equity assets to TMT stocks.

This quarter’s list is led by Philippe Lafont’s Coatue Capital with $8.9 billion devoted to TMT, or more than 87% of equity assets under management. The vast majority of Coatue’s TMT assets fall within Tech and Telecom, including CBS Corp (CBS), Apple Inc (AAPL) and Time Warner Inc (TWX). Over the last quarter, Coatue liquidated its entire stake in Equinix (EQIX), previously its top holding, worth more than $820 million.

27 funds on the top 75 list invested more than 75% of their U.S. equity assets in TMT companies. This includes Andor Capital Management (91% of US equity assets in TMT companies), Crosslink Capital (90%) and Dorsal Capital Management (90%). Andor (#14 on the list) is a technology-focused hedge fund that primarily emphasizes stocks related to information technology, Internet, communications and media industries.

Crosslink Capital, number 25 on the list, is a venture capital and hedge fund manager founded by Partner Seymour 'Sy' Kaufman and General Partner Michael Stark. Prior to founding Crosslink, Mr. Kaufman and Mr. Stark both worked at Robertson Stephens as head of investment banking and Director of Research, respectively.
