Ex-Soros Adviser’s Dalton China Fund Beat Peers With 25% Return

Nov. 25 (Bloomberg) -- The Dalton Greater China Fund, run by James Rosenwald III, a former adviser to funds linked to billionaire George Soros, beat peers with a 25 percent return this year, an investor newsletter seen by Bloomberg News showed.

The $64 million fund outperformed the Eurekahedge Greater China Long-Short Equities Hedge Fund Index by almost 10 percentage points in the first 10 months. Bets on Taiwanese technology companies including Himax Technologies Inc. and Hong Kong-based property developers drove performance, Tony Hsu, Rosenwald’s Shanghai-based co-manager, said in an e-mailed response to Bloomberg News queries.

George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1930. His father was taken prisoner during World War I and eventually fled from captivity in Russia to reunite with his family in Budapest. Soros was thirteen years old when Hitler's Wehrmacht seized Hungary and began deporting the country's Jews to extermination camps. In 1946, as the Soviet Union was taking control of the country, Soros attended a conference in the West and defected. He emigrated in 1947 to England, supported himself by working as a railroad porter and a restaurant waiter, graduated in 1952 from the London School of Economics, and obtained an entry-level position with an investment bank.

In 1956, Soros immigrated to the United States, working as a trader and analyst until 1963. During that time, he developed his own theory of markets called 'reflexivity', which he has laid out in his recent books THE ALCHEMY OF FINANCE and THE CREDIT CRISIS OF 2008 AND WHAT IT MEANS. In 1967 he helped establish an offshore investment fund; and in 1973 he set up a private investment firm that eventually evolved into the Quantum Fund, one of the first hedge funds, through which he accumulated a vast fortune.
