NEW YORK, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Prominent commodities trader Andy Hall's $5 billion hedge fund, Astenbeck Capital Management, rose over 4 percent last month, its highest gain since November, after a surge in platinum group metals prices, the fund said in a monthly letter to investors.
Hall said he anticipated PGMs 'have much further to travel' after last month's rally. Platinum had its best month in a year in January, rising 9 percent.
'January has turned out to be a good month for most risky assets and our portfolio has benefited accordingly,' Hall wrote in the letter dated Feb. 1 and seen by Reuters on Wednesday.
