Report: Brevan Best Bet For Annual Profits

Mar 7 2012 | 3:33pm ET

In terms of investor paydays, there's a new best bet in the hedge fund world.

Brevan Howard Asset Management has returned more money on an annualized basis since inception to investors than any other hedge fund, according to LCH Investments. The ranking, which does not take returns into account per se, shows that Brevan's strong 2011—it enriched investors to the tune of $2.3 billion—bumped its annualized net gains to $1.74 billion.

Last year's champion, Paulson & Co., had the opposite problem, HFMWeek reports. It's annualized gain fell by more than 30% to $1.3 billion after it cost investors $9.6 billion in 2011.
