Campbell & Co. - Quant. fund
Count of distinct funds: 1
This Towson, MD-based fund run by Terri Becks is said to be hurting as a result of the breakdown of the Yen carry trade, as well as the ensuing credit crunch in general. The "completely" computer-driven fund is down 10-12% as of the end of July, according to a source. The fund reportedly deals in futures, stocks, and bonds.
Once again, we cannot help but be amused as a fund claiming to be "hedged" for volatility is showing signs of sickness upon encountering some actual rough seas.
