David Moon, managing director at investment management firm Symmetric.io, said, “It will take a lot of work to get out of this hole.”

Investment companies such as Whale Rock Capital Management LLC’s main fund tumbled 38% through August while HMI Capital Management dropped 39% in the first eight months of the year, Casdin Capital was off 50% and SoMa Partners was off 31%.
