Investors fled Armajaro Asset Management’s flagship commodities fund in the first quarter.
The London-based firm’s Armajaro Commodities Fund’s assets dropped to US$686 million at the end of March from US$904 million at the end of last year. Most of the decline was due to redemptions; the fund lost less than 3% on the quarter.
