If you’d ask most traders, hedge funds are viewed as slow, outdated investment vehicles of years past. While there are more than 8000 funds with their doors open today, we choose to focus on the moguls of this group, close to 450 funds. It is widely believed that this group controls the majority of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by watching their top investments, we have brought to light a few investment strategies that have historically beaten the S&P 500 index. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outstripped the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points annually 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 outpaced the S&P 500 index by 25 percentage points in 6.5 month (explore the details and some picks here).
