Equinox Energy Fund to close
President releases brutally honest evaluation of what went wrong

85% loss of partners money after energy stocks have a tough year.

Equinox Energy Fund to Close

Energy fund Equinox Energy has announced its plans to close their fund after 4 and a half years of torment losing 85% of their partners money.

Stocks in the energy space are down, indexes in the US and Canada are marginally positive and this has been culminated by a huge decline in Q4.

In the middle of July 2019, energy companies fell 3-8% which meant breaking point for many funds.

Honest assessment

Equinox Energy President Sean Fieler cited the key factors that contributed to the funds decline in his brutally honest assessment. These included;

  • Bad stock picking
  • Bear market in E&P companies
  • Bear market in Western Canadian energy prices
  • Bear market in smaller cap energy companies in which we focused

Sean goes on to say that they believed over time, some if not all the trends would reverse and that they were confident energy prices would rebound to more sustainable levels. He openly mentions “regret” at starting the fund in 2015.
