Sept. 7 (Bloomberg) -- John Paulson, the billionaire hedge-fund manager coming off record losses in 2011, reported increases in most of his funds in August as rising stock markets lifted the value of holdings, according to two people briefed on the returns.

Paulson’s Gold Fund led gains with an 11 percent jump in August, which reduced losses this year to 15 percent, said the people, asking not to be named because the information is private. The Advantage funds, which seek to profit from corporate events such as takeovers and bankruptcies, and Paulson Enhanced, which aims to make money from companies involved in mergers, also rose last month.

Armel Leslie, a spokesman for New York-based Paulson & Co., which manages $19.5 billion, declined to comment on the returns.
