Soros Fund Management, the hedge fund founded by George Soros, cut a number of stock analysts and portfolio managers in the last quarter of 2011 in a continued downsizing effort that started with the announcement that the hedge fund would no longer manage money from outside investors.

According to an article on Reuters, the move was overseen by newly installed Chief Investment Officer Scott Bessent, who returned to Soros Fund Management in September almost ten years after leaving to found his own hedge fund. Mr. Bessent will oversee the management of the Soros family’s personal fortune, which remains one of the largest hedge funds in the world with over $25 billion in assets under management.
