Ballingal Macro Manager Barker Out

Aug 6 2013 | 9:47am ET

Geoffrey Barker, who runs Ballingal Investment Advisors' largest hedge fund, is leaving the firm.

Barker has run the Hong Kong-based firm's Pacific Macro Fund since its inception in 2006. The fund manages most of Ballingal's rougly US$200 million in assets under management, Asian Investor reports.

The strategy's future is now in question, according to AI. The fund lost 3% last year, following a 20% jump in 2011.

It is unclear what Barker's future plans are.
