Updated List of Distressed Debt Hedge Funds

Thank you to all who helped me add a few names I missed on our list of distressed debt hedge funds. Some of you also suggested I sort the list alphabetically. Here is the new list of distressed debt hedge funds. If I missed anyone or you would like to be added to the list, please email me (hunter [at] distressed-debt-investing.com). Going forward, I will use this post to keep a list of all distressed debt / event driven hedge funds I come across, combining with linking these to relevant websites and 13Fs.
