Jersey-based Brevan Howard Capital Management has apologized to investors for the hedge fund’s poor performance last year.

The New York Times reported that Brevan co-founder Alan Howard called the firm’s 2.6% return in 2013 “disappointing” in his year-end letter and added that the hedge fund is “determined to deliver a more satisfactory outcome for 2014.”

Howard said that the firm’s interest rate trading, which is one of its main focuses, brought down Brevan’s returns significantly.

Brevan Howard recently surpassed Man Group as Europe’s largest hedge fund firm with approximately $40 billion in assets.
