The Top Small-Cap Hedge fund list is led by Luxembourg-based Artal Group S.A., which unseated TFS Capital LLC. TFS, which had held on to the top spot for two consecutive quarters, fell down to #3 on the list, with $1.7 billion in small-cap assets. West Chester, PA-based TFS Capital LLC, also known as Technical Financial Services, is led by its co-founders Larry Eiben, Kevin Gates and Richard Gates.

Following Artal Group on the list at the #2 spot is Glenn Fuhrman and John Phelan’s MSD Capital. MSD Capital was founded in 1998 to manage the assets of Michael S. Dell and his family, but the firm now manages assets for outside investors as well.
