Oil hedge fund Frere Hall Capital Management’s revenues almost doubled last year—even as its performance left much to be desired.
The London-based firm, founded in 2012 by former Goldman Sachs European oil-trading chief Taimur Hassan, was down about 20% through October. But the firm’s profits still rose 59% to £3.5 million as revenues surged from £3.1 million to £6 million.
Frere Hall was one of the largest European hedge fund launches of 2012, debuting with US$165 million. In September, it had US$650 million in assets.
