Beverly Chandler, Opalesque London: Results released by Gottex Fund Management Holdings Limited (Gottex), for the year ended 31 December 2011 show that the firm returned to operational profitability in 2011 with an operating profit of $0.7m. Gottex’s total fee-earning assets as at 31 December 2011 were $7.34bn, down 11% from $8.26bn at 31 December 2010.

  • Financial performance in-line with current expectations: gross revenues of $58.6m (2010: $63.8m) and substantially reduced overall operational cost of $48.2m (2010: $58.1m) resulted in an operating profit of $0.7m (2010: $5.0m loss); diluted EPS losses of $-0.09 (2010: $-0.10) was generated due to the impact of financial investments and certain impairment charges.
