MetLife MFC’s Vasileios Antoniadis made money in Greek stocks even as the country’s drawn-out bailout talks with creditors roiled markets. None of his peers did.

His MetLife Alico M&S Domestic Equity fund has increased 4.8 percent this year through last week, the only one to gain among 35 focused on Greece, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The rest lost 15 percent on average, with the worst among them giving up as much as 28 percent. The benchmark ASE Index slid 18 percent as months of negotiations and capital controls spurred fears Greece may leave the euro.
