SRM hedge fund sees sharp fall
  Hedgeweb - WED, FEB 06 2008
Funds & Investment SRM Global, the hedge fund that is Northern Rock??s largest shareholder, has fallen almost 50 per cent since it raised $3bn (£1.5bn) in Europe??s biggest hedge fund launch in 2006, according to investors, as a series of big bets turned sour.

The drop, mostly in the past three months, is a serious blow to the reputation of Jon Wood, the former UBS star trader and shareholder activist who runs SRM.

However, long lock-ups prevent investors withdrawing their money for a minimum of three years, leaving Mr Wood time to turn performance around without fear of redemptions until the autumn of next year at the earliest. Much of the money ?? reported to have included $500m UBS put in at launch ?? is locked up for five years.

According to investors, Mr Wood??s fund fell sharply in the final two months of last year to end down about 28 per cent for the year. It dropped further in January, with one investor putting the drop for the month at about 23 per cent. Bloomberg on Wednesday reported SRM had lost 30 per cent up to January 18, when the markets were near lows for the month.
