Commodity hedge fund Armajaro Asset Management’s flagship hedge fund remains down more than 7% this year after posting a small positive return last month.
The firm’s Commodities Fund—which invests primarily in metals, energy and grains, and which did not participate in the huge cocoa buy engineered by firm co-founder Anthony Ward in July—rose almost 0.6% in August, Reuters reports. The US$1 billion fund is down 7.3% on the year.
“Returns can be assigned to copper, gold and the grains complex, with losses suffered in crude oil,” the firm explained in a note to investors.
