LONDON (Reuters)—London-based Armajaro Asset Management lost nearly a quarter of assets at its largest commodities fund in the first quarter, the latest sign that edgy investors have continued to withdraw cash from the sector after weak returns, documents show. Assets under management at Armajaro Commodities Fund (ACF), the biggest of the group's six hedge funds and one of three dedicated to commodities, fell to $686 million by end-March from $904 million at end-December, documents obtained by Reuters on the fund showed on Wednesday [April 16].

LONDON (Reuters)—United Nations economists who previously called for government intervention to tame volatile swings in commodity prices say banks and hedge funds have since reduced their influence to the lowest level since 2008. In a 2012 report for the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), David Bicchetti and Nicolas Maystre said the rise of financial players in commodities markets over the previous decade had moved prices of oil and grains away from the fundamentals of supply and demand.

The global macro products desk, which houses the Swiss bank's rates, foreign exchange and commodities offerings, is likely to face the brunt of any cuts, with continued low interest rates across the developed world and new regulations dramatically reducing client trading volumes and profitability.
