Top Ten We have a surprise for you: the best global macro funds from a private bank’s database.

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

We feature top managers from a different database every issue.

This time we have a lineup of global macro funds. They’re ranked by annualized return since inception, as of the beginning of June 2009. The data comes from a private bank that’s a long-time investor.

These are well-known global macro managers but many are also commodity trading advisors. Some started off as CTAs and diversified to discretionary macro.
