Hedge fund managers jumped on the Trump train in the last three months of 2016, boosting their stakes in financial companies and reducing their holdings in technology firms.

Financial institutions have risen 22 percent since Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 8, on optimism that his administration will reduce regulations, cut taxes and spur deal making. Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. hit a record high Tuesday. Technology shares, meanwhile have risen just 9.3 percent since the election, as measured by the S&P 500 Information Technology Index, about the same as the overall market.
