John W. Henry & Co.’s portfolio of futures offerings wilted in the hot sun last month, dropping between 0.17% in its International Foreign Exchange program to 5.8% in its GlobalAnlaytics program.
A good portion of the firm’s losses came from the interest rate sector, where there was at least a temporary reversal in the trend toward higher global interest rates, according to Kenneth Webster, president.
“The majority of positions in this sector were unprofitable with the largest losses coming from positions in Eurodollars and Japanese Government Bond futures,” he wrote, in his monthly missive to investors.
The firm also took losses in the currencies, equity, precious metals, energy and agricultural markets. Its total assets under management stood at $184 million as of the end of June.
