Cash is king as hedge fund trilogy erects trade-war barricades

The New York-based event-driven credit fund is up 20 percent this year through August after recording 15 percent annualized gains over the past three years by betting on North America’s power-generation market and a Canadian oil sands company, chief operating officer Barry Kupferberg said in an email interview.
