I wouldn't think so. I don't believe the employee only medallion is $70bln. I agree some of their funds are down but at that number it looks like at least a combo of internal and external. Keep in mind they could have raised funds so the AUM figure wouldn't give you their performance.

ohhh so this is not excluding the impact of flows? I stand corrected. it'd be interesting to see AUM and net flows side by side. I should've said their numbers are probably influenced heavily by the medallion fund. my bad

my only point is the renaissance strategies I've invested in are not doing well, so I had a hard time believing that their total asset base was up 3% with this strategy down nearly 20%

As someone else said, this AUM changes ranking is likely a combination of redemption/raising + portfolio returns. By saying "indicative of returns," I meant it implies the fund's overall performance (though not being directly equal to returns). If a fund f*cked up, heavy redemption typically follows (with delay) in addition to the portfolio drop. Meanwhile if they did well, they could easily raise more if they wanted to. 

This might be helpful to those who do not have paid subscription to fund performance reports or with only incomplete subscription.
