Monday, August 30, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - Harcourt Investment Consulting AG, the Switzerland-based global alternative investment solutions provider, announces that assets under management as of 30 June 2010 have reached USD 4.7 billion, corresponding to a growth of USD 200 million for the first half of 2010.

[Harcourt’s AuM were at $3.9bn in the first half of 2009, $4.5bn at the end of 2009.]
