Top Ten: Alpha Titans

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Alpha Titans

This lineup is from the Alpha Titans fund of funds portfolio, which contains other managers that we left out because their strategies are not the subject of this publication. We focus on managed futures, global macro and quantitative trading. So, for instance, Paulson & Co. is part of the portfolio but does not fit our topic. For the record, the 2009 top performing Alpha Titan was Citadel Kensington, which is not on our list.

We have included the 2008 returns so as to provide a longer term perspective and brief strategy descriptions because these managers have different strategies. However, some of them may fit more than one of these descriptors.
