Twenty-six hedge funds on the Top Connecticut Hedge Fund List are based in the suburban hedge fund enclave of Greenwich, CT. While Greenwich is once again the location of choice, Stamford continues to gain momentum, claiming ten of the top spots for the first time.

The top three Connecticut hedge funds on the list are once again all based in Greenwich, including Clifford Asness’ AQR Capital, Andreas Halvorsen’s Viking Global Investors and Steve Mandel’s Lone Pine Capital. Steven A. Cohen’s Point72 Asset Management is number 5 on this quarter’s list, positioning it safely as the largest Stamford-based hedge fund.

Notably, John Thaler’s JAT Capital Management moved up two spots this quarter, laying claim to the 8th spot, after having seen its equity assets surge by nearly $913 million quarter-over-quarter.

84% of JAT Capital’s assets are invested in technology, media and telecom equities, ranking the firm at #4 on the Top TMT Hedge Fund List.
