Third Point and Greenlight Capital were among the hedge fund industry's winners in the first quarter.

New York-based Third Point's Ultra Fund rose 10% on the quarter after rising 2.3% in March. The firm's Partners Fund added 7.1%.

Greenlight did slightly less well, adding just 6.9%, Reuters reports.
