BlueGold Capital Management co-founder Pierre Andurand's new hedge fund is off to a fast start.
Andurand Capital Management's maiden fund debuted on Feb. 1 and has returned 16% over its first two months, Bloomberg News reports. The $200 million fund profited from an arbitrage bet on oil traded in London and New York.
Other prominent commodity funds did less well in the first quarter, with the average one returning 1.3%, according to the Newedge Commodity Trading Index. Armajaro Asset Management's commodities fund rose 3.3% on the month and Brevan Howard Asset Management's added 1.1%. Krom River Trading's Commodity Fund fell 1.8% in the first three months of the year, and Clive Capital declined 2.6%.
Andurand set up his eponymous firm after closing BlueGold last year, following a 34% loss in 2011. The new firm focuses on oil, employs less leverage and holds smaller positions, and does not invest in equities.
