Goldman recently released another update to their Hedge Fund Trend Monitor report, let’s go over some notable highlights.
As @zerohedge likes to periodically point out, Apple remains the hedge fund hotel with 230 funds currently invested, easily the most-loved equity position. Other tech, financials, and pharma are still the most comfortable sectors for hedge funds at the top, with a large number of energy sector stocks included in the top 50.
The largest hedge funds list by equity assets is of course always changing, and is a reminder of how far some, such as Paulson and Co., have fallen.
Finally, the list of largest institutions by equity assets. Fidelity still sits comfortably on top with $544 billion.
