Metals Hedge Fund to Close

Apollo Management LP, a New York based hedge fund and private equity firm  closed its metals hedge fund in London.

The $40 million into the Apollo Metals Trading Fund started in March 2009, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing. An outside spokeswoman for the firm declined today to say why Apollo shut the fund or to give the number of fund employees.

Commodity hedge funds fell in the first half of 2010 amid sliding commodity prices.
