AR Magazine Integrates Alternative Investment News

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 13, 2010) - AR today announced that it will integrate Alternative Investment News (AIN), a publication of Institutional Investor that offers breaking news and analysis of alternative investments.

AIN will bolster AR's online presence, enhancing its offering of news, commentary, profiles, strategic analysis, and research and rankings, offered to subscribers at www.absolutereturn-alpha.com and in print. The move cements AR's position as the world's leading information source on hedge funds.

The integration will be completed post February 1 when AIN will no longer appear as a stand-alone publication.

"This is a logical move with substantial synergies," said Michelle Celarier, the editor of AR. "AIN will solidify our role as the most prominent hedge fund information provider in the industry."

In September 2009, Institutional Investor's Alpha magazine and Absolute Return magazine, published by HedgeFund Intelligence, came together to launch AR, a new magazine and online service covering the global hedge fund industry.
