The fund invests in a wide range of financial securities, including asset-backed securities, loans and equity. Hintze is famous for returning 179% on clients’ capital in the middle of the “Great Recession”, thanks to its bearish bet against the US mortgage market. According to CQS Cayman’s latest 13F filing, its equity portfolio is well diversified to include sectors such as consumer discretionary, health care, technology and others. The estimated market value of the portfolio at the end of June is $1.62 billion, up from the $1.23 billion at the end of the first quarter.
