Seth Klarman is relatively unknown outside value circles, despite his impressive record and value of assets under management. On average Baupost has returned 19% p.a. despite holding a large portion of its assets in cash. During the financial crisis, Seth Klarman’s funds lost somewhere between 7% and 13%, certainly outperforming the majority of its hedge fund peer group.

The group then rebounded during 2009, returning 27%. At the end of the second quarter of this year, Baupost announced yet another strong quarter, ending with the best month the group has had in terms of returns in more than five years, even though around 35% of the portfolio remained invested in cash. Around 14% of the portfolio was also invested in liquidating claims in the Lehman estate, according to the firm’s Q2 letter.
