Credit Funds Labour to Generate Gains in Tricky Environment
Gains proved fairly minimal for credit hedge funds in June, with just two funds managing to return more than 1% on the month as losses crept up on the back of market volatility.
Danske Invest Hedge Mortgage Arbitrage was up 1.01%, while Omni Secured Lending Fund II’s sterling class gained just over 1.03%. Around a dozen more funds posted positive returns of up to 1%, but strong gains have been hard to come by in an increasingly tricky environment.
CapeView Recovery was up 0.64%, while BlueCrest Mercantile gained 0.63%. Cheyne Real Estate Credit Holdings, which was up 3.14% in May, returned about 0.5%.
The stand-out loss of the month was suffered by the Crystal Fund, slipping 12.48% in June. Year-to-date, the fund is down 13.48%, by some way the worst performer in this sector in 2015.
Crystal Fund II Offshore was down 4.58% in June, Rhodium Capital Credit slipped 3.57% and Lucidus Leveraged Credit lost 3.06%, while C-QUADRAT High Yield, WyeTree European Recovery and Cheyne Total Return Credit all dropped by over 2%. Over the first six months, Crystal Fund II has fallen by just over 5% year-to-date.
On the plus side, Dublin-based BK Advisory’s BK Opportunities, a US corporate-focused strategy investing in CLO positions, is up 7.81% since the start of the year, having gained 0.15% for the month of June. The euro B class of Cheyne Real Estate Credit Holdings is up 7.73% year-to-date, while Serone Key Opportunities Fund is showing a half-year return of 6.92%.
LNG Europa Credit fell 0.36% in June, but is up 6.53% through the end of June. Omni Secured Lending has returned more than 5% YTD, while Cheyne Total Return Credit is showing a 4.85% gain, despite its June fall. Clareant Structured Credit Opportunity Fund II is up 4.73% on a six-month basis, with BlueCrest Multi Strategy Credit gaining 3.90% over the first half.
