Duet Group's hot hand continued into the first week of June. The London-based firm's year-old Commodities Fund is up 2.9% this month already, building on a 20% return through May.
The fund, which manages less than $100 million, is now up 23% on the year, Bloomberg News reports.

The Duet fund remains open to new investment and is actively seeking additional capital.
