  • Eton Park started with about $3.5 billion in capital and at the time was among the biggest hedge fund launches.
  • One of its best years came in 2013 when it returned 22%.
  • One of the worst years for the fund was in 2008 when it lost 10%.
  • It grew to manage about $14 billion and opened offices in London and Hong Kong.
  • Its assets under management have fallen by half since 2011.

“A combination of industry headwinds, a difficult market environment and, importantly, our own disappointing 2016 results have challenged our ability to continue to maintain the scale and scope we believe necessary to pursue our investment program.”
