Versar Inc. (NYSEAMEX:VSR) investors should be aware of an increase in support from the world’s most elite money managers lately.

If you’d ask most investors, hedge funds are seen as slow, outdated investment tools of the past. While there are more than 8000 funds with their doors open at the moment, we at Insider Monkey hone in on the aristocrats of this club, around 450 funds. It is estimated that this group controls the majority of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by tracking their top picks, we have revealed a number of investment strategies that have historically beaten the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points a 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 outclassed the S&P 500 index by 24 percentage points in 7 months (explore the details and some picks here).
