In this document, the fund managed by Russell Hawkins declared its long equity positions as of June 30. The fund acknowledged holding more than $752 million in equities, following the acquisition of two new positions and an increase in other two of its preexisting stakes.

The companies implied are: Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE:RDS.A), Oaktree Capital Group LLC (NYSE:OAK) and Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC).
