Who Were the Top Hedgies of 2010?

Congrats to the winners of AR Magazine‘s Hedge Fund Awards for 2010.  Fund of the Year went to Sprott.  Anyone familiar with what gold and silver prices (and miners) have done this year should not fall out of their chair for that one.

Dan Loeb‘s event-driven Third Point is still on top apparently, so is Paulson’s Advantage Fund.

According to AR, there’s a quantitative methodology at work in picking these winners so we’re not talking about a popularity contest.

Here they are by category:

U.S. Equity Sandler Associates
Global Equity Crestwood Capital Partners
Specialist Equity Perceptive Life Sciences
Emerging Market Equity ARX Long Short FIM
Arbitrage & Convertibles Lazard Rathmore
Event Driven Third Point Offshore
Global Macro Bridgewater All Weather
Multistrategy Mariner Partners
Managed Futures Renaissance Institutional Futures
Fixed Income & Mortgage-Backed SPM Structured Servicing Holdings
High Yield & Emerging Market Debt Waterfall Eden
Distressed Perella Weinberg Partners Asset Based Value
Long Term Performance Paulson Advantage
New Fund of the Year Nisswa Convertibles
Management Firm of the Year Bridgewater Associates
Fund of the Year Sprott Capital

The awards were announced last night at a gala event in New York City.  Whenever I see unfamiliar firms pop up on lists like this, I like to look into their 13F filings and find any interviews or presentations the managers may have given recently.  Always a good way to get a feel for what some of the lead dogs are up to in the markets.
