Page 1 of 2

To many of your peers, hedge funds are seen as overrated, outdated investment vehicles of a forgotten age. Although there are In excess of 8,000 hedge funds in operation in present day, Insider Monkey aim at the leaders of this club, close to 525 funds. It is assumed that this group has its hands on the lion’s share of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by paying attention to their highest performing equity investments, we’ve deciphered a few investment strategies that have historically beaten the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outclassed the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (see all of our picks from August).

Equally as key, positive insider trading sentiment is another way to look at the world of equities. Just as you’d expect, there are a number of incentives for an executive to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very obvious reason why they would initiate a purchase. Plenty of empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this strategy if shareholders understand what to do (learn more here).
