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:

4th
Lucerne Capital Fund
23.33%

5th
Alcentra Global Special Situations Fund
22.79%

And here are the bottom three:

Dorset Energy Fund

Tulip Trend Fund

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