The Offshore fund is up 19.1% on the year, the firm told investors. Third Point Partners is up 22.2%, Partners Qualified is up 18.1% and Ultra is up 19.9%.
The average hedge fund was up about 3.5% last month, according to Credit Suisse's Liquid Alternative Beta indices, and about 5.5% on the year. That's much closer to the numbers turned in by Pershing Square Capital Management's International Fund.
William Ackman's $4.4 billion flagship added 3.4% net of fees last month. It is up 6.5% on the year.
