After a less than stellar Q2, the top Mid-Sized Hedge Funds successfully navigated the last quarter, seeing their assets jump by $377M. The Top Mid-Sized Hedge Funds now oversee a combined $68.5 billion in US equities.

Valiant Capital Partners, Mount Kellett Capital Management and Kylin Management LLC lead this quarter’s list. Global long/short equity focused Valiant Capital Partners, which reported assets of $836M, is run by Chris Hansen. Prior to launching Valiant Capital, Hansen worked for seven years at John Griffin’s Blue Ridge Capital.

While Valiant made a name for itself among investors for its early stake in Facebook, netting a supposed $1B+, its founder is probably better known by sports fans for his failed attempt to purchase the NBA’s Sacramento Kings in 2013.

Twenty-six funds on the Top Mid-Sized Hedge Fund list saw their equity assets increase by more than $50 million over the latest quarter. Leading the way were Myriad Asset Management, Segantii Capital Management and HG Vora Capital Management LLC.

Fourteen sector focused hedge fund managers made the list, with nearly $10 billion in assets. The sector focused managers have a range of industry focuses, including: Energy, Financials, Healthcare, Technology and Tech-Media-Telecom (TMT) .
