Top performing Hedge funds 2011

Bloomberg Markets Magazine has just released its list of the World’s 100 Richest Hedge Funds.

Topping the list this year as the most profitable hedge fund is so-called “Tiger cub” Chase Coleman’s Tiger Global long/short equity fund, which is also managed by Feroz Dewan.

Tiger Global, which has approximately $6 billion AUM, had an astonishing YTD total return of 45%, according to Bloomberg Markets Magazine.

Coleman, 36, surpassed a field of veteran hedge funders such as John Paulson, Ken Griffin, Robert Mercer and Peter Brown.
