By Christian Wienberg (Bloomberg) — Kirk Kapital, a wealth fund owned by members of the Lego family, will sell its five product tankers after the vessels triggered the first loss in three years.
Kirk Kapital, with about 8 billion kroner ($1.3 billion) under management, lost a net 182 million kroner last year, the Vejle, Denmark-based fund said in a statement on Thursday. It wrote down the value of the tankers by 224 million kroner.

The fund manages the wealth of the family of Gunhild Kirk Johansen, the sister of Lego’s main owner and Danmark’s second-richest man, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen.
