If you’d ask most traders, hedge funds are assumed to be underperforming, outdated financial tools of the past. While there are more than 8000 funds in operation at present, we look at the moguls of this group, close to 450 funds. It is widely believed that this group oversees most of the hedge fund industry’s total capital, and by paying attention to their best investments, we have deciphered a few investment strategies that have historically beaten the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed 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 outpaced the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (check out a sample of our picks).
