Noob question about this year's rankings

Hey all, noob question alert. So we all know Citadel is on a rampage in recent years and has topped the 2022 league tables by its 16B profit. But looking at this news, what struck me was how strongly Bridgewater has held up over the years - it's the 1st time in 7 years Bridgewater has not topped the table.

Insights into why Bridgewater has been such an insane profit machine, yet does not draw as much clout as the multi-strat pod shops? And how it has been able to top even RenTech, yet people rarely mention that? I always thought Bridge was called the 'biggest HF' purely by grace of AUM, didn't know they were the strongest fund in terms of profit, too. And how such a 'simple' strategy of global macro (by no means am I calling this unsophisticated) can beat out the nimble pod shops? Do you think they can hold up in future, and your thoughts on whether Citadel's growth is just a flash in the pan?
