Macro funds surge in H1 2022

Related Topics

A surge among hedge funds in the first six months of 2022 has been led by the Haidar Jupiter fund which gained 4.6% in June, boosting returns this year to 170%.

The Odey European Inc hedge fund meanwhile, returned 2.2% last month, pushing H1 gains to 114%, according to a report by Bloomberg, which cites recent investor letters 

In general, macro hedge funds, which follow economic trends to bet across asset classes, are soaring so far this year on the back of increased volatility in stocks, bonds and commodities markets. According to data compiled by Bloomberg, macro funds returned an average 5.3% up top the end of May this year, while all other broad hedge fund strategies saw negative returns.

Among the other Q2 macro winners are Bridgewater Associates’ Pure Alpha II fund, which posted a 32% gain in the first six months of the year, Brevan Howard’s flagship fund which rose 14%, and Chris Rokos’s $13 billion macro hedge fund, which gained 12% despite losing 3.8% in June.
