Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater Associates continues to be the world’s largest hedge fund firm.

The Westport, Conn.-based firm topped Institutional Investor's Alpha’s 13 annual Hedge Fund 100 ranking for the fourth consecutive year. Bridgewater boasts $87.1 billion in assets under management as of the start of 2014, a 4.6% increase from the prior year.

The report stated that while hedge fund assets continue to grow at a rapid pace, the bulk of the money is going to just a handful of the world’s largest firms. The top 100 firms managed $1.51 trillion in the beginning of 2014, up almost 14 percent from early 2013, when these firms controlled $1.33 trillion.

New York-based J.P. Morgan Asset Management, which owns Highbridge Capital Management, comes in second, with $59 billion--up more than $4 billion from the previous year. Jersey-based Brevan Howard Asset Management rounds up the top three with $40 billion in assets, unchanged over the past 12 months.
