“Last year was a very strong year for us, both on an absolute and a relative basis,” said Daniel Och, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Och-Ziff. “We surpassed the high-water marks on our assets under management, with our OZ Master Fund having one of its best years ever and our Asia Master Fund achieving record performance. We maintained a disciplined focus on our long-standing investment and risk management processes which, when combined with the flexibility of our multi-strategy approach and the stability of our model, was central to the strength of our returns last year. We believe these attributes, which have continued to serve us well in 2010, position us to generate strong performance for our fund investors over the long term.

“We believe that the capital inflow cycle for the hedge fund industry has begun, and that our assets under management will grow over time. Institutional investors remain extremely focused on manager selection, and we remain confident that our track record, infrastructure and demonstrated alignment of interests with our fund investors will continue to differentiate us in the marketplace.”
