Where are all the hedge funds? Here’s a map of institutional investment managers

If all continues to go well with my research, I should be able to finish my PhD this December. This means starting a job hunt sometime this Summer or Fall. One constraint I have is that wherever I end up moving needs to be a good place to raise kids.

Are there quantitative hedge funds in family-friendly areas? The best way to find them is by buying access to a hedge fund database, but those cost thousands of dollars. So, I did the next-best thing: I generated a list of funds that have filed 13F-HR forms with the SEC this year. I already have all 20 million EDGAR filings archived at home, so processing them in Python was not difficult. The filers aren’t all hedge funds. The SEC describes them as “Institutional Investment Managers.” The large multi-strat hedge funds I know of are in the list, so it’s probably a good place to start.

I collected over 4,000 names and addresses, primarily in the US. Next, I opened up a free account with OpenCageData to forward-geocode the addresses. Finally, I created this map using Leaflet with tile images from OpenStreetMap . Best practice is to use Ajax to dynamically load markers for the current view. It was so much simpler, though, to just load all 4,000 at once. So, I apologize that interacting with the map is slow. It works best on a fast desktop computer.

Hopefully, this map will help myself and others find interesting quant groups to approach.
