ALTIN said that Alpine Select AG issued a press release saying, "At today’s meeting, the Board of Directors of Alpine Select Ltd. has taken the decision in principle, to reduce in medium-term its exposure in hedge funds - held directly as well as indirectly via its majority holding in ALTIN Ltd. - and to again increasingly focus on our traditional topics and/or investment strategies."
