|April 18th, 2014||
|The Top 50 Connecticut Hedge Fund List has been released, revealing that the top CT hedge funds oversee a combined $170.6 billion in US equities. Overall, the hedge funds on the list saw their assets grow by $13 billion, or 7.6% quarter-over-quarter. The growth was driven by strong gains from AQR Capital Management, Viking Global Investors and Discovery Capital Management.|
The largest Connecticut hedge funds on the list are Clifford Asness’ AQR Capital, Steve Mandel’s Lone Pine Capital and Andreas Halvorsen’s Viking Global Investors. Not surprisingly, the top five hedge funds on the list are also ranked amongst the top 10 on Hedge Tracker’s overall Top Equity Hedge Fund List.
John Thaler’s JAT Capital Management nearly cracked the top 10, landing at the number 11 spot on the list with $3.3 billion in assets. 86.3% of JAT Capital’s assets are invested in technology, media and telecom equities, placing the firm at #8 on the Top TMT Hedge Fund List. Before founding JAT, John Thayer was a founding member and Portfolio Manager covering the technology, media and telecom (TMT) sectors at Shumway Capital Partners.
Twenty-nine hedge funds on the Top Connecticut Hedge Fund List are based in the suburban hedge fund enclave of Greenwich, CT. While Greenwich is the location of choice, Stamford and Westport are notably home to eight and five of the top 50 hedge funds, respectively.
