In a letter dated Dec. 18, Mercury said it was either unable or unwilling to sell fixed-income holdings in its Real Estate Securities and Real Estate Securities Offshore funds. The former declined by 8.7% last year through November, and the latter dropped 9.5%.

The onshore version of the fund manages $105 million, and the offshore version $205 million. Overall, the firm manages $900 million in hedge funds.
