Novus Indices
Women-Led Funds

For our analysis, we assembled a peer group of 18 women-led hedge funds. We started with a more comprehensive list sourced from 100 Women in Finance, and narrowed it down using the following criteria:

  1. Founded or currently led by a woman
  2. Submitted Q4 2020 13F filling
  3. Traded on US exchanges
  4. Meaningful AUM and position count (>$100M and >5 positions count)

View individual performance, alpha, and category stats for this list, as well as an aggregate index of women-led funds.

To identify the "best ideas" from among these women-led funds, we isolated securities that exceed a proprietary threshold of conviction. We narrowed the list to the top 20 conviction names, and compiled them into an aggregate portfolio.

For our analysis, we then compared this portfolio against the Novus Hedge Fund Universe (a male-dominated industry index), as well as the wider market.
