The average hedge fund ended the year up only 5.63%, according to the Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index, while the Standard & Poor's 500 Index rose 16% on the year.

The $2.3 billion Fortress Macro Fund was up 17.8%, after adding an estimated 3.07% in December alone.

And the $4.9 billion Drawbridge Special Opportunities Fund gained 1.20% in December for a full-year gain of 16.47%
