Fortress Macro Fund Down, Commodities Fund Up

Feb 8 2011 | 12:40pm ET

January was a mixed month for Fortress Investment Group, the firm said in a regulatory filing.

The New York-based alternative investments giant, which recently began disclosing its monthly hedge fund performance, said its Macro Fund lost 0.21% last month while its Commodities Fund rose 0.67%. It also said that its Drawbridge Special Opportunities fund returned more than 25% last year.

Fortress, which is publicly-listed, is the second U.S. hedge fund firm to publicly disclose its returns. Och-Ziff Capital Management has done so since it went public several years ago.
