Reuters – Shares in BH Macro, a listed feeder fund to the Brevan Howard global macro fund, Europe’s biggest hedge fund with assets of $20 billion, have sunk to a 13 percent discount to net asset value as a wave of selling has swept through European financial markets.
The fund was down 2 percent at 1255 pence in afternoon trading. Earlier Tuesday, BH Macro reported in a regulatory filing that its NAV at the close of business on Oct 3 was 1411 pence per share.
"The whole sector has moved to quite considerable discounts," said Mark James, executive director at RBS. "BH Macro is trading on its widest ever discount."
BH Macro has about $1.6 billion in capital. It came to market in early 2006 to provide access to Brevan Howard’s global macro hedge fund, which was and has continued to be closed to new investors.
