Odey Asset Management is closing a hedge fund that failed to capture enough investor interest, and money.
The London-based firm set up the Tactical Advantage Fund, a global long/short offering, in 2006, and opened it to more investment the following year.

The fund’s manager, Suren Patel, is no longer a portfolio manager at Odey, but remains with the firm as an adviser to firm founder Crispin Odey.
