Why Caxton Associates Is Reducing Management Fees

Updated on

Andrew Law’s Caxton Associates, one of the oldest and most expensive hedge funds, trimmed management fees amid losses, joining Tudor Investment Corp. and Och-Ziff Capital Management in responding to an investor backlash that’s roiled the industry.

The firm will charge 2.2 percent to 2.5 percent annually on assets, according to a letter obtained by Bloomberg. It previously charged as much as 2.6 percent, according to a government filing. Caxton, based in New York, will continue to take a 27.5 percent cut of profits. In announcing the decision to investors, Law took aim at rivals.
