Week in Review, October 28

Crispin Odey, one of London's best-known hedge fund figures, saw his flagship fund slashed by a string of ill-timed bearish trades and client outflows, writes Miles Johnson in London. The outspoken investor and prominent backer of Brexit has seen the assets in his Odey European fund fall from €2.5bn at the start of 2015 to €184m, according to fund documents. Total assets managed by Odey Asset Management, which include funds not run directly by Mr Odey, have fallen from $11.7bn at the start of 2015 to $6bn at the end of August. A disastrous 2016 resulted in the Odey European fund, which Mr Odey launched in 1992, losing just under 50 per cent after leveraged currency trades went awry.
