*Ranking of top 50 performers with $1 billion or more in assets, based on funds’ net returns for 2016. The data was compiled from information supplied by fund companies, investors and fund databases. Because hedge-fund returns can be difficult to obtain, lists are not all-inclusive. All returns are for full-year 2016; fund assets are through Dec. 31, 2016. Onshore and offshore assets were combined for a number of funds, while figures for other funds were only for the larger or better-performing class of the fund.
