Einhorn's Reinsurer Cut Gold Holdings Amid Bear Market

Monday, 29 Jul 2013 05:51 PM

Greenlight Capital Re Ltd., the reinsurer that counts hedge fund manager David Einhorn as its chairman, cut an investment in gold in the three months ended June 30 as prices fell into a bear market.

The reinsurer had about $50.5 million of commodities at the end of the second quarter, compared with $90.3 million on March 31, according to a regulatory filing Monday.

The “decrease in commodities was due to a decline in the price of gold combined with the disposal of a portion of our physical gold holdings,” the Cayman Islands-based reinsurer said in the filing.
