Winton Capital Management's second-ever annual loss put a big dent into its profits last year.

The London-based quantitative hedge fund posted earnings after taxes of £58.6 million (US$95.1 million) in 2012, down 64% from 2011's £162 million. The firm's revenues fell 45% to £193 million on lower performance fees, as its flagship Futures Fund fell 3.5%—its second down year since its debut in 1997.

The US$9.8 billion fund has bounced back somewhat this year, rising 3.5%.
