Hedge fund manager John Zwanstraa is joining his mentor in semi-retirement.
Zwanstraa's Penta Investment Advisers will return all investor capital. The 14-year-old firm's assets have dropped by about $1 billion to less than $2 billion over the past six months. At the middle of last year, about 40% of Penta's $2.9 billion in assets belonged to the firm's principals.
