Emerging Markets Propel Smaller Macro Hedge Funds to Success
|October 30th, 2012
|The recent retirement of trading dynamo, Greg Coffey, age 41, from Moore Capital, signals the continuing fall from grace of the long-established macro hedge funds such as Tudor Corporation and Caxton Associates. As reported by Financial Times, a number of once prominent macro hedge funds are giving way to newer, smaller and more nimble macro hedge funds with managers who are able to think outside the U.S.-Eurozone box. |
The average macro hedge fund is up just 0.7 percent this year while several, smaller hedge fund managers are reaping returns of 15 to 20 percent by focusing almost exclusively on emerging markets in Turkey, eastern Europe, South America and Korea. Hedge funds such as BTG Pactual, Pivot, Armajaro Emerging Markets, Pharo Management and Autonomy Capital Research have decoupled their strategies from events in the Eurozone and the U.S., something the more established macro hedge funds haven’t been able or willing to do.
