There are 227 institutional investors that have $1 billion or more invested in hedge funds, according to a recent report from Preqin.

Members of the “$1 billion club” range from family offices to endowments. But the most frequent member: pension funds.

Overall, 40 percent of the capital of the “$1 billion club” comes from public and private pension funds, according to the report.

Public pension assets make up 25 percent of the club’s collective capital, while private sector pension assets account for 15 percent.
