Soros, Paulson Post Biggest Returns Since Inception

Sep 13 2010 | 11:53am ET

This year has been a rough one for Paulson & Co. But since its inception, the New York-based hedge fund giant (almost) cannot be beat when it comes to making money for investors.

Paulson has made $26.4 billion in net gains since it was founded in 1994, according to a new study by LCH Investments. The only hedge fund manager that can claim a better record is Soros Fund Management, which has earned $32 billion in net gains—but George Soros has been at it for more than 20 years longer, setting up his firm in 1973.
