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.”

Learning more about the largest hedge funds in the world can help you understand where some of the top investors are focusing now and the direction they are headed in the future.
