Contrarian Capital Buffeted By Redemptions

Jun 5 2008 | 12:48pm ET

Investors have turned downright contrary with Contrarian Capital Management.

The Greenwich, Conn.-based shop saw its flagship fund shrink by about $700 million in the fourth quarter of last year, almost entirely due to client redemptions. The size of the fund fell 14% due to withdrawals, from about $4.9 billion to about $4.2 billion, according to the New York Post. By contrast, the fund lost only 1.24% due to negative returns for all of last year.

The fund has turned things around to some extent this year, adding about $1 billion in new money. In terms of returns, the fund is down almost 1% this year.
