Julian Robertson’s cubs may have been roarin’ so far this year but as good as their performance was, it wasn’t good enough for them to crack into the top five.

Zero Hedge has just released a 20 best (and worst) performing hedge funds for 2015 list and surprisingly, none of the usual suspects – save for John Burbank’s Passport Capital – were on it.

Burbank’s Passport Special Opportunities Fund came in third this year with a huge 29.18% return through July 31, while Simon Sadler’s Segantii Asia-Pacific Equity Multi-Strategy Fund came in second with an eye-popping 32.19% return through August 28. Topping them all though is Joseph Edelman’s Perceptive Life Sciences Offshore Fund, which boasts a Druckemiller-esque 35.34% return through August 21. Here’s the rest of the top five:

Fund name

Lucerne Capital Fund
July 31

Alcentra Global Special Situations Fund
July 31

And here are the bottom three:

Fund name

Dorset Energy Fund
August 28

Elm Ridge Capital Partners

Tulip Trend Fund

Forever haters, Zero Hedge would like to point out that John Paulson has stopped publishing his performance figures entirely.
