According to Bloomberg News, Carhart’s Kepos Capital, with $2 billion in assets, gained 7.8 percent in December, locking in a 22 percent annual gain for investors.

Paul Tudor Jones also finished the year somewhat strong, as his 30 year old Tudor Futures Fund ended the year up 3.2 percent. Despite slightly outperforming its peers, in mid-December, the firm announced plans to close its $300 million Tudor Futures Fund and return cash to investors, sighting that the fund had become too expensive to manage.
