Since inception, the value partnership has returned 11% annualized, compared to 7.9% for the MSCI world.

These numbers understate Acacia's performance since inception because they do not reflect the firm's average cash position since inception of 39.2%. The group started 2018 with a cash position of 38.6% and averaged around 42.5% throughout the year.
