Segantii Soars 8.3% In April For Best-Ever Month

May 13 2014 | 9:57am ET

April was a ho-hum month, at best, for the average hedge fund. For Segantii Capital Management, it was its best month ever.

Segantii’s six-and-a-half year old Asia-Pacific Equity Multi-Strategy Fund rose 8.3% last month, Bloomberg News reports. The jump erased the $638.9 million fund’s first-quarter losses and has it up 6% year-to-date.

Segantii focuses on North Asian stocks and equity-linked securities. Its relative-value strategy proved especially strong in April, returning 7.9%. The Hong Kong-based firm did not elaborate on which investments proved most successful.

Segantii has enjoyed annualized returns of 13.8% since its debut in late 2007, but suffered its first-ever losing year in 2013, dropping 1.7%.
