JPMorgan Chase Ranked Top Hedge Fund Firm by AUM

JPMorgan Chase & Co. has been ranked the world's largest hedge fund firm by Pensions & Investments magazine.  The bank owns Highbridge Capital Management LLC and the two combined to manage $53.5 billion in assets last year.  Bridgewater Associates ranked second at $43 billion and John Paulson's hedge fund firm, Paulson &Co., ranked third at $32 billion.  For the complete list follow this link.

Pensions & Investments' list of the world's largest hedge fund firms — those with at least $20 billion as of Dec. 31 — shows that assets managed by the 11 companies totaled $316.2 billion, virtually the same as the $316 billion managed by the 10 hedge fund managers that made P&I's last ranking, based on data as of Dec. 31, 2007 (P&I, Feb. 4, 2008).
The flat growth disguises what clearly was a period of intense turmoil for many hedge fund managers, some of which were rocked by performance woes in the last months of 2008 and first few months of 2009, as well as by client redemptions.
The result is that the composition of the list of the hedge fund managers with more than $20 billion under management changed significantly:
•Hedge fund assets of three prominent firms — Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Renaissance Technologies Corp. and Citadel Investment Group — fell below the $20 billion cutoff, dropping the three from the ranking.
