With hedge fund SEC filings due this week, this is a great time to find and follow the top 100 hedge fund managers. As with all experts, you can see which stocks they are buying and selling and also find out more about how their hedge fund performs. Here’s how it works.
The Top 100 Hedge Fund Managers
TipRanks only tracks leading hedge funds. It currently tracks the performance of 390 hedge fund managers. At the end of each fiscal quarter, hedge funds managing over $100M are required to submit a 13F form to the SEC listing their current holdings. Based on this information, TipRanks determines how each hedge fund performed compared to other hedge funds and the S&P 500. TipRanks tracks managers by taking 3 factors into consideration:
Portfolio value – total assets under management
Portfolio gain– since 2013
Sharpe ratio – which measures portfolio return, compared to its risk
The hedge fund managers section of the expert center introduces you to the top 100 managers. The list includes assets under management, portfolio gain, Sharpe ratio, average return, number of followers, as well as a ‘follow’ button. You can filter the list according to the dollar amount of the assets under management.
