Back in April, Caryl Englander decided she needed some space, and the 20-plus rooms she and hubby Izzy Englander own at 740 Park were not cutting it for the necessary alone time. So she bought a $60 million apartment 15 blocks away. Happily, whether it was the RVs or the last positive returns from that quant portfolio he just killed or a combination thereof, Izzy’s having no problem paying for it.
Izzy Englander’s Millennium Management returned 8.3 percent this year through September with its main hedge fund, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
The firm’s flagship multistrategy fund rose 1.1 percent last month, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public.
Also, Ken Griffin’s made almost enough this year to pay for his Palm Beach bachelor pad, as well as throw a few extra bucks in the direction of the local art museum.
Citadel’s flagship Wellington fund rose 2.1 percent in September, bringing performance for the year to 13.5 percent, Bloomberg reported on Oct. 2. The firm’s Global Equities fund was up 1.4 percent last month, leaving returns through this year at 8.4 percent, a person familiar said. Its Tactical Trading fund, which uses equity and quant strategies, jumped 2.4 percent and is up 13.6 percent for the year.
