With the world as its oyster, Brevan Howard, a global macro hedge fund juggernaut, pulled nearly $1.5 billion of gains from the tumultuous global markets in just the first three weeks of August. As reported by the Financial Times, its London-based, flagship Master Fund headed by Alan Howard, was able to break out from its flat year-to-date performance to boost its yearly gain to 11%. The Brevan Howard fund’s strategy, which seeks to capitalize on global economic turmoil, finally gained a toe-hold in the summer, and then raced by other top August performers such as Paul Tudor’s Tudor BVI Global Fund, and Moore Capital’s Moore Global Fund.
