BlueCrest, Metacapital Among June Losers

Jun 26 2013 | 12:34pm ET

A host of high-profile hedge funds have taken a beating this month.

BlueCrest Capital Management's US$14 billion BlueTrend Fund is down 8.3% through the first three weeks of June, extending its year-to-date losses to 9.2%. BlueTrend has never suffered a losing year.

Also hurting this month is one of last year's best-performing hedge funds, Metacapital Management, which was down 5.66% on the year through June 14—before the recent Federal Reserve-statement fueled selloff.

The Man Group's AHL Diversified strategy has shed 3.5% this month, leaving the US$16.3 billion flagship down 2.8% on the year, Bloomberg News reports. Winton Capital Management's Futures Fund, which manages US$10 billion, is down 3.3% on the month, and Brevan Howard Asset Management's listed BH Macro Fund suffered big losses earlier in June, although it dropped just 0.1% last week. The fund is up 3.2% in 2013.

Other funds suffering losses this month include Bridgewater Associates and Cantab Capital Management
