The March drawdown leaves Greenlight Capital Re’s portfolio—essentially, Greenlight Capital—down 1.9% through the first quarter. The reinsurer, where Greenlight Capital head David Einhorn serves as chairman, enjoyed a 32% return last year.
According to the reinsurer, Greenlight Capital’s top five positions were CIT Group, Lanxess, Pfizer and the Vodafone Group, as well as gold.
Greenlight Capital invests primarily in publicly traded North American corporate debt offerings and equities.

It also operates Greenlight Capital Re, a property/casualty reinsurer.
