The rankings are based on returns self-reported by CTAs and hedge funds with more than $1m in assets, encompassing managed accounts, offshore funds, Ucits and ’40 Act vehicles.

The rankings are compiled by CTA Intelligence using data from BarclayHedge and Morningstar. Some returns are latest estimates at time of publication and may be subject to revision.
