In a trend that seems to be solidifying, the list of top performers in the hedge fund industry continues to be dominated by smaller, low-profile hedge fund firms. As reported by Reuters, data released by Simplify counts at least five small hedge funds among the top ten that posted gains of 50 percent or more through November 2014, with Alchemy Capital Management (63 percent), EcoR1 Capital (62.2 percent) and venBio Select Fund (61.8 percent) taking the top three spots.

Other top performers with relatively small asset pools on the list include Mulvaney Global Diversified Program and ISAM Systematic Fund.

On the larger and more renowned side is Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital Management, which posted a 38.6 percent gain. All of the hedge funds on the list stood out in a year that saw the hedge fund industry suffered through another lackluster year with an average return of around 4 percent.
