Hugh Hendry Makes Big Via His ‘China Short’ Fund

Hugh Hendry, who manages the Scottish hedge fund Eclectica Asset Management, makes over 52% profit in the year 2011 through his ‘China Short’ fund, according to a FT reports.

This might be the most successful trade in 2011. The fund’s more than 52% return has beaten the average hedge fund performance – a loss of 4.37% – to the ground.

Hugh Hendry takes notice on China since 2009. Since it’s difficult to short Chinese companies directly, Mr. Hendry constructed his portfolio from a series of short positions against some highly cyclical Japanese corporate credits with large Chinese exposures. As a result, Mr. Hendry made big profit even during the Japanese credit downgrade.
