To most traders, hedge funds are seen as slow, old financial vehicles of years past. While there are more than 8000 funds with their doors open at present, we look at the crème de la crème of this group, close to 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group has its hands on the majority of the hedge fund industry’s total capital, and by watching their highest performing picks, we have discovered a few investment strategies that have historically outstripped Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outstripped 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 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (see the details here).
