Volatility Hedge Funds Down In 2013

images (3)New York (HedgeCo.Net) – Volatility funds such as $600 million Saiers Capital fund, use strategies that take advantage of pricing discrepancies caused by gyrations in global financial markets.

“These funds flourished in the years after the financial crisis, when volatility was running hot, but this year is a different story.” Reuters reports.

Investors are saying that Saiers Capital’s fund is down about 1.24 percent through April 26. Hedge fund tracking firm eVestment reports that volatility funds gained 1.16 percent in the first quarter, underperforming the broader hedge fund industry’s 3.7 percent gain.

Volatility funds represent around $17 billion in the hedge fund industry’s $2 trillion in assets.
