most exclusive hedge fund

What's the most elite hedge fund you can name of? Not AUM, just the exclusiveness?

Pershing Square. Regardless of your impression of Ackman, the investment team is a grand total of 7 people with ~$2B of aum per IP.

Obviously LTCM 🙄 

 

Ok but seriously, if you're willing to count them TGS is a real contender, way smaller than Renaissance but rumoured to be similarly profitable. For context by the 2010s the founding partners had donated a similar amount to the net worths of your favourite hedge fund moguls...printing billions every year in California sunshine, not bad at all...

Would second TGS - crazy (purposefully) under the radar. But would correct their founders are based in Princeton.

Exclusive by nature just means highest AUM with least amount of employees and least amount of turnover. Some LinkedIn troll I'm sure can output a database of results for you. Maybe some 3 person family office in Belgium that bought 50bips of all bitcoins in 2010 is your answer.

Also, exclusive in this sense doesn't necessarily mean it's good for employees, or good for employees starting today (versus 20 years ago). I worked at a quant fund that was somewhat like this ($2b/head) and almost never hired anyone on the investment side, but the top people kept all the money for themselves and paid analysts peanuts.

People really seem to be sleeping on TGS here

Surprised nobody has mentioned Elliott Management. They have one of the most secretive cultures - also very difficult to get into.
