The Complete Rich List: The 21st Annual Ranking of the Highest-Earning Hedge Fund Managers
With almost $27 billion in combined earnings, 2021 was another highly lucrative year for the hedge fund elite.
Jim Simons is back on top.
For the fifth time in seven years, the 83-year-old founder of quant specialist Renaissance Technologies leads Institutional Investor’s Rich List, the definitive ranking of the highest-earning hedge fund managers.
Simons retook the throne after earning $3.4 billion in 2021, supplanting last year’s leader, Israel “Izzy” Englander.
