The hedge funds on our top 10 list are not the same as those considered to be the largest in the world. This is due to a different ranking system, with the largest hedge funds list taking into consideration the AUM only.

From a size perspective, the 10 hedge funds detailed above, ranked by AUM, are the largest in the world. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean these are the “best” or “top performing.”
