Although there are more than 8,000 hedge funds in operation today, this site looks at the elite of this group, close to 525 funds. It is assumed that this group has its hands on most of the smart money’s total capital, and by monitoring their highest performing investments, we’ve figured out a number of investment strategies that have historically outperformed Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year 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 trumped the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find the details here).
