LONDON, February 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The Top 100 best performing hedge funds with over $1 Billion of assets under management generated returns from +5 to +38% in 2012. Ranging from single asset classes ,to macro, of the Top 10 performers, over a third made their returns (+25% avg.) from long/short and multi strategy according to a recent survey by Bloomberg.

They returned hedge funds +23% in 2012, or put another way, +73% vs. the MSCI World Index.
This +23% return by TSR was generated from the ideas they advised and recommended clients to buy/hold and adding them to their TSR Portfolio, which is solely based on global Corporate Spinoffs that TSR released research on pre-event. Currently, TSR's Portfolio has returned an absolute +76% since Dec. 2007 (and that's vs. -12% for the MSCI World Index).
