Highlights: After large gains for Vailshire Partners LP hedge fund in August, September has seen renewed tough tariff-talk and Twitter-Induced Volatility (TIV) into the worldwide markets. Our fund remains cautiously long, but in added protection mode to preserve our hard-won gains.
The role of central banks and political maneuvering in the markets are unprecedented. I feel, however, that this is the new norm… at least for the foreseeable future. It behooves to continue acting with equal measures of boldness and caution.
Our gross year-to-date performance of 19.3% continues to easily outperform the S&P 500, the comparison index of Vailshire Partners LP.
