GHF Group real estate hedge fund doubles value in 9 months

Thursday, September 23, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - GHF Group reported today that the unit value of their alternative investment fund in the real estate sector surpassed the 200% mark since January 2010.

The fund yielded a 43% return in 2009, and continued to benefit from low interest rates and a below-value housing market in the U.S. and Europe in 2010. In spite of slow signs of global economic recovery, the real estate fund is expected to continue outperforming most sectors this year.

Asian and European investors who represent 82% of the fund holders have portfolios that utilize equity-related strategies for diversification. The fund invests in U.S. and European capital market instruments ranging from equities, debt and derivatives with returns linked to residential and commercial real estate, utilizing long-short and relative-value strategies.

“The relative-value method takes advantage of mismatches in prices of securities across markets and long-short strategies profit from both rising and falling prices” quoted GHF Group Senior Real Estate Analyst Bruce Morton. “Originally this fund was structured to hedge inflation risks. In the second year of the global recession, however, it is now driving the value of most clients’ holdings”. Corporate website: www.ghfgroup.net
