Hot Performing Stocks For 2018

Very few hedge fund managers start with $2 billion from investor George Soros. One who did, Scott Bessent, has already given much of it back.

As Bessent has gathered capital since his firm’s 2016 launch, he has returned Soros’s money as part of an arrangement between the two, according to a person familiar with Soros’s family office who requested anonymity. Soros had $853 million remaining in a managed account at Key Square Group at the end of 2017, according to a March regulatory filing.

Bessent, who established a strong track record as the chief investment officer at Soros Fund Management, has gathered assets at Key Square while mostly outperforming rival macro managers. The New York-based firm had assets of about $5.1 billion at the end of last year, according to a filing.

“Soros is a very visible name,” said Richard Klitzberg, whose namesake firm helps hedge funds find investors. “If you are running money for him and you are putting up good numbers, everybody in the world wants a piece of you.”
