3) Fisher Asset Management

Ken Fisher founded this fund in 1979, which isn’t technically a hedge fund although we still track it due to its prominent spot in the investing world. Fisher Asset Management has been going strong ever since, reaching an equity portfolio value of $38.51 billion.

4) Renaissance Technologies

Jim Simons is top dog at Renaissance Technologies, a hedge fund company with an equity portfolio value of $38.14 billion.

6) Icahn Capital Lp

Carl Icahn is one of the most well known names in the industry, and he oversees $21.51 billion in capital invested in the stock market.

8) Paulson & Co

John Paulson started this hedge fund in 1994 and the rest is history. He now has over $14 billion invested in the stock market.

9) Bridgewater Associates

Ray Dalio has a long history of investing success, and Bridgewater has $11.4 billion in its equity portfolio.

10) Pershing Square

Bill Ackman believes in long term value investing, and this has suited him well at Pershing Square. The hedge fund has an equity portfolio value of $10.95 billion, and closes out this list of top 10 hedge funds.

Of course, these totals don’t represent the actual sizes of the largest hedge funds. For that, assets under management (AUM) is the figure to look at. See what the largest hedge fund in the world is here, by AUM.
