While there are greater than 8000 funds trading today, we at Insider Monkey hone in on the aristocrats of this club, around 450 funds. It is widely believed that this group controls the lion’s share of the hedge fund industry’s total capital, and by tracking their highest performing investments, we have revealed a few investment strategies that have historically outstripped the S&P 500 index. 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 began to 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).
