Soroban had cute energy run in 1H but I can't imagine they finished up (> 5%) on the year. My guess -2% to +4%. Good #s and really sharp ppl

TCI smacked (-22% -- know they lost $8.1bn and I believe $36.2bn under mgmt)

Definitely not saying those funds were exclusively SMs... was just curious about the performance of a few funds if anyone had the information. For example, Holocene is a mix of SM/MM/sector heads - with a best ideas portfolio run by Brandon, and then sector heads who run "pods"... sort of... and market neutral obvs.

I'm amused Atlantic is mentioned in this list. Has been a marginal fund for 10 years now.

Just to clarify for everyone! I definitely know the funds I mentioned are not exclusively SMs (obviously...) and I was not saying any of them were up in 2022... was just a few funds in general that I was curious about how performance has been...

Appreciate the commentary on Atlantic - why have they have been so marginal over the last decade? Is it because they have lost their good performers / their strategy no longer works, or is it more their concentrated value approach wasn't conducive to the last decade. Or have you just heard their performance has been below average for a long time now. 


  • Intern in IB - Gen

I mean the CIO helps the PMs to size and determine their best positions so still a good level of influence from the central decision maker

  • Investment Analyst in HF - EquityHedge

scopia, sylebra, greenlight

plenty smaller funds up though

Thanks for the info. Any more colour on their HFs strategy? Do they also invest in privates and equities or is it only distressed.
