Paulson: Unaffected by Hard Times

New York (HedgeCo.Net) – At a time when most hedge funds are posting their worst year to date, John Paulson somehow manages to stay afloat.  The founder of Paulson & Co. has informed investors that his funds are in fact up in November and furthermore, posting double-digit gains.

Paulson’s Advantage Plus Fund, which manages around $10 billion, climbed 3.19 percent in November, with a 33.5 percent gain for the year.  His $5 billion Advantage Fund followed suit, posting gains of just over 2 percent in November and 21 percent for the year.

John Paulson bet infamously against the housing market, predicting the subprime fallout that ensued.  His insight allowed him to rake in $3.5 billion virtually overnight, giving him the most lucrative Wall Street payday to date.  It also landed him on the Forbres Richest List at number 78, with a net worth estimated at $4.5 billion.

Paulson & Co. currently manages approximately $35 billion through several hedge funds.
