Which hedge fund companies are performing well in such COVID times?

It is too early to ascertain this since we are still in the midst of a pandemic. The performance of stocks should be gauged for the long term, and 6-8 months is too less a time to judge the performance of hedge funds. Though one can argue that you know their true worth only in adversity, it's still unfair to judge them on the basis of these unusual circumstances.

However, hedge funds do employ both long and short strategies and invest across stocks, bonds, derivatives, currencies, and commodities to generate positive returns even when the stock markets tank. While markets have made a substantial recovery from their March lows, it’s still too early into the crisis to have certainty about what equities, credit, and hedge funds will do for the rest of 2020 and into 2021.

Although, one can definitely notice that proven, well-experienced hedge fund managers do have a much greater ability to respond to the current turbulence than most other asset-class managers. Just based on this, given below are some hedge funds that have had a better performance than their peers this year-

  • Bridgewater Associates
  • Soros Fund Management
  • Renaissance Technologies
  • The Baupost Group
  • Tiger Global Management
