Winton Capital Management's profit jumped by almost a quarter last year, after assets under management grew by more than half.
The London-based quantitative hedge fund said that its 2011 after-tax profit was £162 million, up 23% from 2010. Revenue rose to £282 million, a 24% jump.
Winton's assets rose by almost 65% in 2011 to US$28 billion, making it the fourth-biggest hedge fund in Europe.
Much of the profit went right into the pocket of Winton founder David Harding. Harding reportedly earned £87 million last year. Winton's investors have done less well since they poured into the hedge fund: The firm's flagship Futures Fund is down 3.5% this year, although it did rise 6.3% last year.
