The fund – a carve-out of Tabet’s event-driven sub-portfolio within Jabre’s flagship multi-strategy offering – is annualising at around 17.5% after seven months of trading. Since launch it is up by around 10% and the fund is up by almost 6% this year, despite losing just over 1% in May – compared with a return of just 1.3%
