ate investment performance of our funds through July 31st continued to be strong,” said Daniel S. Och, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Och-Ziff. “We again demonstrated our ability to protect capital through effective asset allocation and exposure management in response to the volatile market environment globally in late May and June. We maintained the returns we generated in the first part of the year, and extended that performance as market conditions became more constructive in July.
“Pension funds remain our largest source of new capital on a year-to-date basis through August 1st, and private banks have also been a substantial contributor to our net inflows. Reception by fund investors to our dedicated credit platforms continues to be strong. We are expanding these platforms by building on the expertise of our global credit team, which is a natural extension of our business. We are taking a similar approach with our real estate and dedicated long/short equity special situations platforms. We believe that each of these strategies has substantial long-term growth potential in terms of assets under management. They are also important sources of product diversification, complementing the growth opportunity we continue to see in our multi-strategy products.”
