"But Where Are the Customers' Yachts?" Forbes Billionaires List Contains 65 Hedge Fund and Private Equity Managers

It is a classic story of of the 1920s. Just prior to the stock market crash that set off the Great Depression, New York Stock Exchange President Richard Whitney was being given a tour of the harbor in an exclusive enclave close to New York. His host pointed to the yachts filling the port and began to list which ones belonged to bankers, which to investment managers and which to brokers. "But where," asked Whitney, "are the customers' yachts?"

Forbes magazines has just released its annual list of the world's billionaires. It should come as no surprise that despite the financial crisis, the ensuing recession and even the anemic stab at financial regulation, 65 of those billionaires are hedge fund and private equity managers. An interesting question that may be asked eventually is at what point, if ever, will those not on the list be sufficiently discomfitted by this news that they begin to ask another question made famous during such an earlier time, "Where's mine?"

FinAlternatives names the names:

"Four years ago, he wasn't even a billionaire. But today, John Paulson is the richest alternative investments mogul in the world, according to Forbes magazine's latest roster of global billionaires.

With a net worth of $16 billion—$4 billion more than a year ago—the Paulson & Co. chief displaced George Soros as the richest hedge fund manager this year. Paulson places 39th overall on a list once again topped by Mexican telecommunications billionaire Carlos Slim Helú with $74 billion.

There are 1,210 billionaires in the world today, 109 more than last year. The group has a combined net worth of $4.5 trillion.

No fewer than 65 of those billionaires have ties to the alternative investments industry. And six of them are worth at least 10 figures: In addition to Paulson, the alternatives players with at least $10 billion in assets were Michael Dell, who made his fortune in computers but has expanded into hedge funds, with $14.6 billion, Soros Fund Management's George Soros with $14.5 billion, Icahn Enterprises' Carl Icahn with $12.5 billion, MacAndrews & Forbes' Ronald Perelman with $12 billion and retired Renaissance Technologies chief James Simons with $10.6 billion.

As would be expected with a list that grew as much as this one, there are a few new faces: Noam Gottesman of GLG Partners comes in with $1.4 billion, Sandell Asset Management founder Thomas Sandell makes the grade this year with $1.1 billion in net worth, and Trian Partners' Nelson Peltz just makes the cut with a bare-minimum $1 billion. And J.W. Henry & Co. founder and Boston Red Sox owner John Henry is back, also at the $1 billion level.

At least one hedge fund manager fell from the list: Maverick Capital Management's Sam Wyly, who capped a year in which he was charged with fraud by losing his status as a billionaire. Another nearly tumbled off the list: The Blackstone Group's Peter Peterson, who saw his net worth halved last year to just $1 billion.

A handful of alternative investments figures saw their bank accounts rise by at least $1 billion, in addition to Paulson. Simons is $2.1 billion richer, Bridgewater Associates' Ray Dalio and Icahn are both $2 billion richer, Steven Cohen is $1.6 billion richer and David Tepper is $1.5 billion richer.
