Varus Gains In February

Mar 13 2013 | 11:55am ET

Varus Capital Management has opened 2013 with two months of gains, albeit relatively small ones.

The Swiss firm, whose Varus Fund focuses on mid- and large-cap companies in Germany, returned 0.8% last month. The fund lost 13.8% last year after two straight years of double-digit gains.

Varus said its Feburary returns were driven by its construction, healthcare and technology investments.

Varus' three shareclasses are up between 0.9% and 1% on the year.
