If you’d ask most stock holders, hedge funds are seen as worthless, old investment tools of years past. While there are over 8000 funds in operation today, we hone in on the aristocrats of this group, close to 450 funds.

Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outperformed the S&P 500 index by 25 percentage points in 6.5 month (explore the details and some picks here).
