AlphaMetrix Teams Up With Decision Analytics to Launch Unique Next Generation UCITS Fund Family

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Dec 15, 2011) - AlphaMetrix LLC, founder and operator of the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace, a U.S. leading edge technology based hedge fund platform, has entered into a strategic partnership with Decision Analytics Advisory Partners AG, the Swiss-based founder and operator of the Next Generation UCITS platform. The collaboration offers non-U.S. investors access to UCITS-compliant versions of proven CTA and hedge fund strategies of boutique alternative investment management firms who have completed the rigorous AlphaMetrix manager due diligence process.

AlphaMetrix, awarded top rankings by Inc. 500 and Chicago Crain's as among the fastest growing privately-held companies in the U.S., brings deep knowledge and research expertise to the partnership in relation to CTA/managed futures and other hedge fund strategies.

Decision Analytics will select from over 100 AlphaMetrix approved managers to partner with to structure and set up the UCITS offerings which will be launched, administered, and monitored on the Next Generation platform domiciled in either Germany or Luxembourg.

Next Generation UCITS funds will be listed on the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace alongside managers' non-UCITS funds and managed account vehicles, providing non-U.S investors a broader choice of vehicles offered by selected managers, on a worldwide basis.

"We are excited to be involved in the unique Next Generation UCITS business which offers significant benefits to our platform managers and expanded universe of investors," states Mikus Kins, AlphaMetrix Head of Business Development. "The AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace, by allowing investors and managers to track fund performance, risk management and portfolio data on a near real time basis and now via the UCITS offering, will connect managers directly with non-U.S. investors on a truly global scale," said Kins.

"The collaboration with AlphaMetrix complements the collective capabilities and expertise of the existing Next Generation partners and clearly demonstrates our aim to instill investor confidence in relation to the high standards and quality of the Next Generation funds family," states Fred Sage, Managing Partner of Decision Analytics.

Next Generation funds are offered to qualified investors on a private placement basis via a range of vehicles including single manager and multi-manager funds, customized portfolios and separate managed accounts.
