GlobeOp Capital Movement Index: October inflows advance 0.31%

London and New York - 12 October 2011

Hedge fund flows as measured by the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index advanced 0.31% in October.

“Hedge fund investors remain committed,” said Hans Hufschmid, chief executive officer, GlobeOp Financial Services (LSE:GO.). “After a double-digit decline in equities over the quarter, alternative investments continue to hold their attraction.”

The GlobeOp Capital Movement Index represents the monthly net of hedge fund subscriptions and redemptions administered by GlobeOp. This monthly net is divided by the total assets under administration (AuA) for GlobeOp's fund administration clients.

Cumulatively, the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index for October 2011 stands at 137.46 points, an increase of 0.31 points over September 2011. The Index has advanced 14.26 points over the past 12 months. The next publication date is November 10, 2011.

Published on the eighth business day of each month, the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index presents a timely and accurate view of investments in hedge funds on the GlobeOp administration platform. Data is based on actual subscriptions and redemptions independently calculated and confirmed from real capital movements, and published only a few business days after they occur. Following the month of its release, the Index may be updated for capital movements that occurred after the 5th business day.
