Billionaire hedge fund manager Clifford Asness sold his South Beach penthouse for $22 million, 15 percent less than he paid for it two years ago.

Asness, co-founder of AQR Capital Management, sold the 6,800-square-foot unit at 321 Ocean to a private equity executive from the Northeast, according to the Wall Street Journal.

It traded for $3,235 per square foot.

Though the luxury single-family home market in Miami Beach has seen a number of high-priced deals, the condo market is not performing as well, especially during the pandemic.

In 2018, Asness paid $26 million for the five-bedroom unit, which includes a private rooftop deck, a fire pit and pool. He listed the penthouse at 321 Ocean Drive for sale last year for $29.5 million, and sold it for a 25 percent discount off the asking price.

The AQR Capital executive is worth about $1.7 billion, according to Forbes.

Asness had purchased the Miami Beach condo from Russian venture capitalist Boris Johnson, who once had the unit listed for $53 million.
