D.E. Shaw Group's flagship hedge fund is in position to post its second-straight double-digit year.

The $9 billion Oculus Fund rose 0.4% last month and is up 9.7% on the year. The quantitative fund returned 18% last year.

Oculus has suffered only one losing month this year, in April, when it lost 0.5%. Its best month of the year was January, when it rose 3.7%, ValueWalk reports.

The firm's two-year-old Heliant Fund is doing even better, up 10% this year despite a 1.8% drop last month. That fund manages $1.6 billion.

D.E. Shaw's $7 billion Composite Fund is up 3.8% on the year after shedding 0.2% in July.
