The top European fund - Pegasus - from Clareville Capital Partners, jumped 54.1% in the first 10 months of 2013, making it Europe's best-performing fund of any size and the number 5 midsize fund in the world. Bloomberg ranks the funds based on their own research and data, third party data, and figures provided by hedge funds themselves. Funds are split into groups based on their AUM.

The magazine noes that both Matrix Capital Management and Paulson Recovery topped the list because they focus on concentrated portfolios with no more than 10-12 positions each.
