Clarium Falls 10% In March, Up 15% In ‘08

Apr 7 2008 | 2:00am ET

It’s been easy come, easy go, for Clarium Capital Management this year. The San Francisco-based hedge fund posted a 24.4% return in January, but plunged 9.9% last month, it told investors last week.

On the bright side for those investors, the $3.8 billion global macro fund, headed by PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, remains up 15% year-to-date, Reuters reports.

Clarium blamed the March decline on losses on foreign equity holdings.

Clarium returned in excess of 40% last year.
