    But in northern New Jersey, David Tepper had another extremely strong year. The founder and head of Appaloosa Management guided his flagship hedge fund to net returns of nearly 30%. Tepper personally made an estimated $2.2 billion in 2012, topping Forbes’ list of the 40 highest-earning hedge fund managers and traders.

  2. sounds mediocre to me.
     
  3. hedge funds are the scam of the century.

    congrats to the managers who pull in a fortune with their scams. they cannot consistently outperform the market and when they do, the fees destroy the alpha. they are mostly a joke. and dont give me rentech as an example. im talking about 99% of them not the 1%.
     
  4. Most of the higest-earning category already have billions in AUM.
     
  5. " his flagship hedge fund to net returns of nearly 30%. "

    How about: The Net returns 30% would be around 40% gross returns per nominal amount, or 120% gross returns per actual funds when the ratio of Actual funds:Notional funds is 1 to 2?
     
  6. Well done. Pulling in 10 figures is really impressive.

  8. You would think pulling in $2.2B that Tepper could give a bit more to his namesake business school...
     
  9. He's Jewish and still "tight with a buck". :cool:
     
  10. What's wrong? Were you omitted from the list? :confused: :( :p :D
