HSBC Names 2009’s Biggest Hedge Fund Winners, Losers

Jan 25 2010 | 4:00pm ET

Back in October we gave you HSBC Private Bank’s ranking of the top winners and losers in hedge fund land. At the time we received numerous calls and emails from readers asking why their funds—some of which were up more than 100%—weren’t on the list. After pointing out that we were just the messenger, we suggested the managers give HSBC a call and put themselves on the bank’s radar. Alas, whether the managers didn’t call, or HSBC simply didn’t listen, the latest ranking from "the world’s private bank” look strikingly similar to their October’s rankings.

According to the most recent HSBC Hedge Weekly, Turnberry Capital International, Palomino Fund LTD Class B, and the Henderson European Absolute Return fund are the big winners, up 155.95% (through Dec.), 117.53% (through Nov.), and 110.93% (through Dec.), respectively.
