Data in the research note showed that value as a factor has declined in six of the last ten years, amounting to a cumulative loss of 15 percent.

In a letter to investors, Global Return President and CIO Elliot Trexler wrote that the fund ended the half with a significant cash position of approximately 30 percent.
