Bridgewater Associates has again been named the world's largest hedge fund, this time by Institutional Investor magazine.
The Connecticut hedge fund giant holds the top spot in II's 10th annual Hedge Fund 100 ranking with $58.9 billion in assets. It is followed by JPMorgan Asset Management, which, including its Highbridge Capital Management unit, manages $54.2 billion.
Despite its acquisition of GLG Partners last year, the Man Group had to settle for third place: By II's calculations, Man Investments has just $40.6 billion in assets under management.
Paulson & Co. ($35.9 billion) and Brevan Howard Asset Management ($32 billion) rounded out the top five.
The 100 largest hedge funds in the world managed $1.21 trillion, 12% more than the group managed a year ago. And the top five manage a combined $221.6 billion—almost as much as the top 100 managed 10 years ago.
