Financial Times columnist Lucy Kellway deconstructs investor letters from hedge funds. In her sights are the recent investor letters issued by Greenlight Capital and TPG-Axon. The story brings into harsh relief a very important question: what do you say to investors when you are down 20, 30 or 40%? Using these two funds as templates, Kellway notes 8 “rules” of the investor letter, ranging from being too long to sounding upbeat about the future.

What she doesn’t appreciate or mention in the article is that, in these circumstances, the letter is a formality. The more important communications with investors are happening in person and over the phone.
