While there are over 8000 funds in operation at present, we at Insider Monkey choose to focus on the masters of this club, around 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group has its hands on the majority of all hedge funds’ total asset base, and by tracking their top equity investments, we have found a few investment strategies that have historically outstripped the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat 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 beaten the S&P 500 index by 24 percentage points in 7 months (see the details here).
