Ping Capital Off To Stellar Start In 2011

Feb 4 2011 | 1:43pm ET

Ping Jiang is starting off 2011 the same way he finished 2010, with his maiden fund producing stellar results. The former SAC Capital Advisors money manager saw the Ping Exceptional Value fund post gains of 7.11% in January, according to documents obtained by Dealbreaker.com.

The $155 million vehicle (AUM as of Dec. 2010) returned 105% last year and 193% in 2009. But life hasn’t been all roses for the New York-based firm, which launched its maiden vehicle in June 2008 and promptly lost 34.26% over its first seven months. Those days, however, seem to be long gone, and Jiang’s firm continues to grow.

Last month, Ping Capital Management launched its second vehicle, the Emerging Markets Macro Fund. That fund differs from the firm’s maiden vehicle by targeting a lower volatility and focusing more on short-term trading.
