It’s been a mystery, until now.  The Hedge Fund Journal in partnership with Price- WaterhouseCoopers has revealed the Top 50 Women in Hedge Funds.  I wrote an article several months ago entitled “Should You Hire a Woman To Manage Your Money ” when I first learned of the news that from the years 2000 through 2009, while all hedge funds were up 6% on average, those run by women were up 9%.   In 2008, all mutual funds dropped 19% while those run by women were down less than 10%.  I’ll say it again, those numbers are compelling!

The most amazing statistic according to the Hedge Fund Journal is that women manage an estimated 3% slice of the $1.5 trillion invested in hedge funds, according to Hedge Fund Journal.

You can read a short overview about the release on the FINS website, an extension of the Wall Street Journal for those in the financial services industry.

In addition you can download the pdf :  Top 50 Women in Hedge Funds.

My favorite on the list?  Karen Finerman.  You might recognize her name because she appears on CNBC’s Fast Money .  Finerman is Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Metropolitan Capital Advisors in New York.  She’s smart, successful, articulate, and can hold her own on the fast-paced technical investment show.  This woman does it all.  She sits on the board of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, manages a successful hedge fund, appears as a tv personality almost daily, and did I mention that she has two sets of twins???  Wow.  She’s a testament to success for aspiring women in finance!
