The Top 200 New York Area Hedge Funds continue to have strong momentum, having seen their assets grow by $97.2 billion or 12.1% year-to-date. Combined, the top NYC hedge funds ended the quarter just shy of the $900 billion mark, reporting $898.7 billion in equity assets.

Quarter-over-quarter growth was driven by a core group of 30 elite hedge funds that all saw their assets increase by more the $1 billion each. Not surprising, leading the top gainers are industry stalwarts Two Sigma Investments, Icahn Associates and Pershing Square Capital Management.

Notably, Emerging Hedge Fund Managers accounted for thirty of the hedge funds on the list. Among the more notable emerging managers to make the list is Roystone Capital Management, a value-orientated hedge fund firm that was founded in 2013 by Richard Barrera. Barrera previously held portfolio manager positions at Redwood Capital Management and Glenview Capital Management. While Roystone Capital is ranked #81 on the list with $2.5 billion in assets, Larry Robbins’ Glenview Capital is ranked #10 with nearly $17.2 billion in assets.

The Top 200 New York Hedge Fund list was not without turnover, as 25 new hedge funds have made it onto the list this year already. The biggest jump for a new entrant belongs to TIG Advisors LLC, which landed at number 130 with just over $1.5 billion in equity assets.

Not surprisingly, Manhattan is home to 165 of the top 200 funds. While Manhattan is king, the Connecticut suburbs of New York are still very much relevant, claiming the headquarters for 2 of the top hedge funds.
