"The value of our investment process, our multi-strategy model and our international capabilities was again readily apparent as we generated strong risk-adjusted returns for our fund investors during the second quarter and in July," said Daniel Och, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Och-Ziff. "Our performance demonstrates the benefits of our active risk management process, investment portfolio diversity and consistently low use of leverage.

"We remain confident that the long-term, secular growth drivers of assets under management remain intact for the hedge fund industry. Despite recent market volatility, we believe the capital allocation cycle is underway and confidence among institutional investors in this sector remains strong.
