Odey Adds to Epistem Holdings Position

James Hanbury's Odey Absolute Return hedge fund has more than doubled its stake in London listed Biotechnology support company, Epistem Holdings (LON:EHP).

Due to trading on January 31st, Hanbury's fund increased their holding from 6.46% to 15.51%.  The Odey group of funds often share positions but in this case it looks as though Hanbury's fund is the sole owner.

Hanbury's fund also disclosed a new position in Wolfson Microelectronics last week.

Per Google Finance, Epistem Holdings is "a holding company.
