While there are more than 8000 funds with their doors open today, we at Insider Monkey look at the elite of this group, about 450 funds. It is widely believed that this group controls most of the smart money’s total capital, and by keeping an eye on their top equity investments, we have determined a few investment strategies that have historically outpaced the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat 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 outpaced the S&P 500 index by 25 percentage points in 6.5 month (see all of our picks from August).
