Hedge fund managers are the “big dogs” of the hedge fund industry. They either run a particular strategy (e.g., long/short equity, event driven, fixed income and credit, macro and managed future, etc.) within a larger hedge fund or manage the entire hedge fund. Many managers are the founders of the firm. Hedge fund managers are also known as portfolio managers (although this title may also refer to those who manage a fund, but don’t own it) or managing partners.
