New York-based Paulson & Co.’s hedge funds, up triple digits this year, experienced lower returns in November, as many hedge funds tanked.
The $28 billion hedge fund manager’s Credit Opportunities I fund is up almost sixfold year-to-date, and its Credit Opportunities II fund more than threefold, on bets against subprime mortgages.

Credit Opportunities I rose 5.78% last month, MarketWatch reports, and is up 587.5% through the first 11 months of the year. Credit Opportunities II rose 4.86%, and is up about 350%.
