Hedge Fund Stone Milliner Asset Management Will Shutter
Hedge fund closures have outpaced fund launches since 2015
Macro hedge fund Stone Milliner Asset Management is closing its doors. The company announced it would return capital to investors in the face of weak performance and ongoing outflows. Bloomberg reported that the firm had about $3 billion under management in October. That figure is down roughly 50% from its peak.
