The Top 200 U.S. Equity Hedge Fund recorded another strong quarter, seeing growth of almost 8%. Assets managed by the top 200 totaled nearly $1.2B, more than a $100M jump since the previous quarter. The surge was led by strong performances from the top 150 funds, 75% of which saw assets increase over the quarter.

There was significant movement in this quarter’s list with 43% of the top 150 funds gained spots on the list while 49% lost ground. This quarter’s top 200 hedge fund list includes 19 new entrants, including two international funds - The Children's Investment Fund Mgmt (TCI) and Caledonia (Private) Investments Pty Ltd.

TCI is a London-based activist hedge fund manager founded in 2003 by Chris Hohn, who previously led the European investment strategy for Perry Capital. A portion of TCI's profits were historically given to The Children's Investment Fund Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on improving the lives of children living in poverty in developing countries.

Caledonia is long short equity investor based out of Sydney that manages private and institutional assets. The firm was founded in 1992 as a private investment group but opened its doors institutional investors starting in 1998.

Two hedge funds previously in the top 150 fell failed to make it on this quarter’s top 200 list. Quantitative Investment Management LLC, a quantitative investor from Charlottesville VA, and Seminole Management, a NY-based long-short equity fund, were previously 134 and 135 on the list, respectively.
