The latest Top Equity Hedge Fund list has been released, revealing that the top 100 hedge funds now oversee $716 billion in U.S. Equity assets. The 20.2% rise in assets can largely be attributed to the thirty-seven hedge funds on the list that saw their equity assets increase by more than $1 billion. Leading the asset surge were Two Sigma Investments (+$7.1B), Renaissance Technologies Corporation (+$6.9B) and Millennium Management (+$6.28B).

Several prominent value and deep value focused equity funds were among the top gainers, including Icahn Associates, AQR Capital Management and Trian Group. Combined, the eighteen value focused funds on the Top 100 Equity Hedge Fund list saw their assets increase by $18.6 billion.

Not surprisingly, multi-strategy styled and long/short equity funds are again the dominating strategies on the top 100 hedge fund list, overseeing $166B and $110B in equity assets, respectively. Meanwhile, several notable sector focused hedge funds made the list, including TMT focused Coatue Capital, healthcare focused Criterion Capital Management, and technology focused Tiger Global Management, among others.
