Zen Capital Management Surges 6.11% in September
Sydney, Australia – The Zen Capital Management Global Fund SP delivered a staggering 6.11% in September whilst most funds floundered.
Managing Director Gregory Carroll said “high returns mean nothing without an assessment of the risk taken to deliver those returns. Zen’s September return was delivered with Sharpe Ratio of 5.79, implying we took very little risk to deliver our high return”.
The Zen Capital Management Global Fund SP has not been without its problems. Post launch in October 2012 it ran into technical difficulties with its data supply. For much of 2014 the fund has been held back by a lack of tradable opportunities and markets with little volatility.
When commenting on the outlook for Zen, Carroll said “we see September as the beginning of normalization in markets. Participants now believe the US will tighten interest rates beginning next year. The Federal Reserve life support system, in place since the GFC, is about to be turned off. That’s going to create volatility and, in turn, opportunity for Zen”.
