Apollo Management has shut its metals hedge fund, which launched just last year.

The London-based Apollo Metals Trading Fund was seeded with US$40 million last March. But the fund was faced with a difficult commodity market, and fund manager Mark Thompson left the firm last month, Bloomberg News reports.

The Apollo fund invested in industrial and precious metals, as well as mining stocks.
