Ten Biggest U.S. Hedge Funds

The latest list of top hedge funds by assets is out and most of the same players remain industry heavyweights.
If you don’t have a subscription to AR Magazine, here’s a recap of their latest top 10.  It’s very similar to a list done by Pensions & Investments magazine in the spring, but the new one doesn’t include D.E. Shaw.
According to the report, AR Magazine’s estimates are much lower than D.E. Shaw’s in terms of assets. The hedge fund company has just cut 150 jobs after reportedly suffering heavy redemptions.
Behind Bridgewater Associates at No. 1 with $50.9 billion were (in order by assets under management):
JPMorgan (JPM), with $41.1 billion.
Paulson & Co., which had 31 billion.
Soros Fund Management, with $27 billion.
Och-Ziff Capital Management Group (OZM), with 25.3 billion.
BlackRock Inc. (BLK), with $22.83 billion.
Angelo, Gordon & Co. at $22.68 billion.
Baupost Group at $22 billion.
Farallon Capital Management with $20 billion.
King Street Capital Management at $19.3 billion.
