Third Point is one of the few hedge funds that have been able to keep up with the rallying stock market this year, and punctuated its first quarter with a strong March.
The New York-based hedge fund's flagship Offshore Fund returned 2.8% last month and is up 9.2% on the year, the firm told investors Thursday. The more highly-levered Third Point Ultra rose 4.2% on the month and is up 13.3% on the year, Reuters reports.
That’s a rare feat for hedge funds in 2013: topping the Standard & Poor's 500 Index, which was up over 3% in March and 10% in the first quarter.
Greenlight Capital also reported March gains which bested most peers, but not Third Point. New York-based Greenlight returned 2.3% on the month and is up 6.1% on the year.
