Brevan Howard Asset Management's emerging markets fund is down by double-digits this year, a difficult one for the strategy.
Most emerging-markets funds are underperforming this year, with their targets having been battered by global economic uncertainty. But Brevan's $2.8 billion fund has been hit harder than most, and is down 12% through Oct. 4, Reuters reports.
The Brevan emerging-markets fund is managed by Geraldine Sundstrom and gained 14% last year.
The fund is up 1.21% this month.
