Swiss fund of hedge funds ALTIN flat in H1

Wednesday, August 31, 2011
ALTIN AG, the Swiss alternative investment company, has today published its half year results as at 30 June, 2011.

ALTIN AG is down 0.57% YTD (as at July 28th, 2011), compared to the HFRI FoF Composite index at +0.09% and the MSCI World Hedge Index at -1.34%.

Thanks to the active management of its underlying hedge fund strategies and good manager selection, ALTIN has been able to protect its investors’ portfolios during the first half of the year in 2011 and has significantly outperformed the HFRI FoF Composite and MSCI World Hedged indices since its launch, with an annualized performance of +7.18%. ALTIN’s portfolio, which comprises over 35 funds, is very liquid, enabling the fund manager to follow a dynamic management approach and to take advantage of investment opportunities.
