GlobeOp Capital Movement Index: February inflows

LONDON--(Marketwire - Feb 10, 2012) -


GlobeOp Capital Movement Index: February inflows advance 2.25%

Hedge fund flows as measured by
the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index advanced 2.25% in February."Net flows
were positive, against a backdrop of record low outflows,"
said Hans Hufschmid, chief executive officer, GlobeOp Financial
Services (LSE: GO.).

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 February 2012
stands at 142.60 points, an increase of 2.25 points over January 2012.
The Index has advanced 13.48 points over the past 12 months. The next
publication date is March 12, 2012.

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 when the data is drawn for publication.

The first two Indices - the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index and the
GlobeOp Forward Redemption Indicator- provide monthly reports based on
actual and anticipated capital movement data independently collected
from all hedge fund clients for whom GlobeOp provides administration
services. While individual fund data is anonymized by aggregation,
Index data will be based on the same reconciled fund data GlobeOp uses
to produce fund net asset value (NAV) reports. GlobeOp's total assets
under administration represent approximately eight to 10 percent of the
estimated assets currently invested in the hedge fund sector. The
investment strategies of the funds in the Indices span a representative
industry sample. Data for middle and back office clients who are not
fund administration clients is not included in the Index but is
included in the company's results announcement data about AuA.
