“May I have your attention please. Now playing first base for your Boston Red Sox, number nine, Andy Carroll. Carroll now playing first base.”
Red Sox owner John Henry is shutting down his Florida investment firm after several years of decline, but Henry insists he has no intention of selling his stake in the Boston baseball franchise.
Founded in 1982, John W. Henry & Co. helped Henry build a fortune using complex statistical models to trade in commodities. The firm managed $2.5 billion in 2004, the year the Red Sox won the World Series. But assets under its watch declined dramatically in the financial crisis and have not come back.
On Friday, Henry said the Boca Raton firm told clients in October that it planned to return the rest of their money—which now amounts to less than $100 million—by year’s end. It will continue to manage Henry’s personal account.
