Christian Siva-Jothy, a veteran of Goldman Sachs’s famed proprietary trading team, is reportedly shutting down his SemperMacro Capital LLP. The hedge fund manager, which Siva-Jothy founded in 2004, has suffered from poor performance. According to Bloomberg, the firm’s flagship SemperMacro Fund Ltd lost 8.7% in 2008 and 27% in 2009. Year-to-date the hedge fund was down 2.3%.

SemperMacro Capital LLP followed a discretionary directional global macro strategy. Before closing down, the firm only had $200mm in assets under management. Assets peaked at SemperMacro back in 2006 when they hit $1.5bn.
