Investors looking for high returns on their money should start by looking at the biggest funds, according to a new report from investment research firm Guggenheimer.
The Guggens report says that while it’s too early to predict the size of the global hedge fund industry, it seems likely that many of the biggest hedge fund companies will be the same size or larger than many hedge funds are today.
Guggenhenheimer’s report looked at a broad range of asset classes, including stocks, bonds, derivatives, and fixed income.
It found that the average size of an active fund today is around $4 billion, compared with the $15 billion that investors used to invest the same way in the past.
The average fund is also up from $7.5 billion in 2018, when the global market peaked.
The most common assets in the hedge fund world are stocks, which are growing at an average annual rate of 7.8%, according to the report.
But these funds are not as diversified as the mutual funds, which have diversified across industries.
The top ten stocks in the top ten hedge fund funds were all from the same sector, according the report, but the average hedge fund has about $12.5 trillion in assets.
The next largest stocks were pharmaceutical companies, with an average of $5.6 billion, followed by technology, at $4.5 million.
Other industries that make up the top 10 include utilities, construction, insurance, healthcare, and real estate.
“The top 10 are all very diverse and there are a lot of companies,” said David Rolfe, managing director at Guggensteiner.
“The most diverse of these are the technology and insurance sectors.”
The average hedge funds have around $7 trillion in holdings, while the average fund holds about $10 trillion.
But the top hedge fund stocks are still far smaller than the average funds.
For example, the top three top-ten hedge funds in the U.S. were $1.2 trillion and $1 trillion, respectively.
That’s because the top funds have been around for a long time, and the average mutual fund has been around only since 2006.
The report found that in terms of fund size, the biggest firms in the fund world, like BNP Paribas, have about $737 billion in assets, compared to $1,000 billion for the average ETF, which sits in the mid-teens.
But BNP is smaller than most hedge funds.
Guzzenheim said that while the top 100 hedge funds held an average share of about 7.5% of the market in 2018.
The next largest funds were about 3.8%.
