ALTIN market review and portfolio holdings

as of 1st July 2016

Baar, 14 July 2016 – ALTIN AG (SIX: ALTN, LSE: AIA), the Swiss alternative investment company listed on the London and Swiss stock exchanges, today discloses its entire hedge fund portfolio holdings as part of its policy of full transparency to investors. The portfolio, which is well diversified across 35 underlying hedge funds, has achieved an NAV performance of +204.26%1 since its inception in December 1996.

Since the end of 2015, the ALTIN share price was up +2.31% and +0.83% on the Swiss (SIX) and London (LSE) exchanges respectively at the end of June 2016. Over the same period, the share price discount to NAV continued to fall, reducing to 9.65%, based on the latest estimates. Thanks to the permanent capital base provided by its structure, the ALTIN portfolio can be allocated to funds that require a slightly longer lock-up but offer potentially higher returns, without incurring any liquidity mismatch. The portfolio remains, however, highly liquid, with 60.50% of assets invested in funds with monthly or better liquidity, allowing the manager to make allocation shifts when deemed necessary.

ALTIN: Q2 2016 commentary

The portfolio was down for the quarter in a market environment driven by macro factors and political uncertainty.

With regards to strategies, risk-seeking styles such as Macro and Equity Hedge detracted from performance while Event-Driven, Relative Value and Protection strategies offset part of the losses.

From a position specific perspective, equity managers with a low net exposure have performed the best amidst a risk on/risk off environment. In addition, systematic macro funds took advantage of their long fixed income trades while shorter-term traders profited from the whipsawing markets. Credit focused Event-Driven managers also provided positive returns after having suffered losses since the mid-2014 sell off in the risky credit and energy sector.

Managers exposed to European equities had the worse performance during the quarter, as a strong risk-off trend starting in May spread out until the Brexit vote. This affected systematic market neutral funds as well, as market regimes shifted during the quarter. Protection strategies did provide some relief, as the VIX peaked towards the end of June. Given the difficult environment encountered in Q2, performance was stable and the portfolio’s volatility levels remained within expectations.
