    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.
  7. Nice! thanks for posting this. Those guys are real inspirations, It's the new gilded age.

  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
