This year will not be a lost one for all commodity hedge funds.
While most managers in the space are suffering losses amidst a double-digit stock-market rally, Taylor Woods Capital Management can boast of a double-digit return of its own. The $860 million fund is up 18% through October, Bloomberg News reports, on track to post the best—indeed, first positive—year of its three-year life.
Greenwich, Conn.-based Taylor Woods was set up by former Credit Suisse star trader George Taylor and Trevor Woods, and lost 5% in its first year and 2.3% last year.
Doing even better is Andurand Capital Management, the energy hedge fund set up in February by BlueGold Capital Management founder Pierre Andurand. That fund is up 27% in its first year, in spite of a 5.8% drop in October.
Also in the black in 2013 is Jamison Capital Partners' Koppenberg Macro Commodity Fund, which is up about 6%, according to Bloomberg. That fund has $1.5 billion in assets.
Others have not been as good or lucky: Frere Hall Capital Management was bludgeoned in October, losing 22% to wipe out its small 1.2% gain through September. The fund has $646 million in assets.
