If you’d ask most traders, hedge funds are viewed as worthless, outdated investment vehicles of the past. While there are greater than 8000 funds trading today, we at Insider Monkey look at the moguls of this club, about 450 funds. It is estimated that this group controls the lion’s share of the hedge fund industry’s total asset base, and by monitoring their best picks, we have unearthed a few investment strategies that have historically outpaced the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points annually 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 24 percentage points in 7 months (see the details here).
