A London-based hedge fund that suffered losses betting against US retailer GameStop during the first meme stock rally in January is shutting down, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday.

White Square Capital has told investors that it will shut its main fund and return capital this month after a review of its business model, the newspaper said, citing people familiar with the fund and a letter to investors.

The firm did not respond to a Reuters request for comment outside of regular UK business hours.
