Chris Levett, who shut his commodity hedge-fund firm in 2013 after it posted almost three straight years of losses, plans to return to the industry with billionaire Louis Bacon’s Moore Capital Management LLC.
Clive Capital LLP paid its top- earning partner $33.5 million in the 12 months through February as the commodity hedge-fund firm managed by Chris Levett posted losses for clients for a second straight year.
Clive Capital LLP’s assets plunged 46 percent in 2012 after the commodity hedge fund lost money for a second year running and investors withdrew their cash, said two people with knowledge of the matter.
Chris Levett’s Clive Capital LLP gained as much as $230 million in May after betting oil, power and coal prices would fall as oil tumbled as much as 12 percent, two people with knowledge of the fund said.
Andrew J. Hall, the oil trader whose $100 million compensation while at Citigroup Inc. ignited controversy in 2009 over pay packages at bailed-out banks, posted his commodity hedge fund’s biggest annual loss last year.
