Current news for this fund:
John W. Henry & Co. - "Long term trend following" in managed futures
Count of distinct funds: 7
Recent events (especially the rally in the Yen) have accentuated a swan dive of John W. Henry's various funds (7 of 8 of them, according to the second article). Assets under management have apparently dropped from $2.8 billion at the peak in 2005 to around $500 million now.
The second describes Strategic Allocation Program as JWH's "flagship" fund, and suggests it was down at least 12% as of April. We're unclear on where it sits now. That article has extensive details of the Firm's difficulties due to what seems to be dwindling interest from its founder, who is now arguably more interested in professional sports franchise ownership.

Important: This fund is on our list of hedge funds that are apparently ailing or which we think are worth watching for any other reason. Ailing funds haven't shut down, but they've suffered significant value declines and/or temporarily halted redemptions. Funds on watch may not even have unusual declines, but may be posted if it is felt there may be risk of developing a more serious condition eventually.
