Goldman Is World No.1 Hedge Fund June 23, 2006

Posted by newyorkscot in Markets.

Goldman has turned into the world’s biggest Hedge fund, according to Institutional Investor’s Alpha magazine. Goldman now has over $21bn of assets under management up 88% from last year, and is managed by 50 managers. The no.2 spot goes to CT-based Bridgewater Associates who manage $20.9bn.

The survey remarks on the emergence and dominance of mega-managers whose investment decisions are based on a massive number-crunching on a significant amount of compute power. Would be interesting to know exactly what type of compute infrastructure they are running this on..

Interesting profile of the “quant” nature of the GS Alpha fund here, GS’s active alpha investing here, as well as their glossary  of terms.
