Ken Griffin rated nation's best-paid hedge fund manager, again

Add another superlative to the burgeoning trophy cabinet of Illinois' richest person, Ken Griffin.

The Citadel founder has been named the nation's joint top-earning hedge fund manager in 2015 by Institutional Investor's Alpha, a trade publication that has been ranking hedge fund bosses for 15 years.

Even though 2015 was Griffin's worst year since 2010, according to Alpha, he still raked in $1.7 billion last year.

In what the magazine described as a difficult year for hedge funds, that was enough for Griffin to tie with Renaissance Technologies founder James Simons for the top spot.
