Headstart Advisers: Headstart Fund of Funds Scoops 3 Performance Awards

(Not for distribution in the United States of America) Press Release For immediate distribution Headstart Fund of Funds Scoops 3 Performance Awards Headstart Advisers' flagship Fund of Hedge Funds was the recipient of three performance awards for 2013. The Headstart Fund of Funds was awarded the: Hedge Funds Review - Best Sub $250m Fund of Hedge Funds award, the World Finance - Best Diversified Fund of Hedge Funds - Europe award and the International Hedge Fund Awards - Best Diversified Fund of Hedge Funds. Posting a full year return of 15.35% and building on the Fund's 14 year track record the Headstart Fund of Funds advised by Headstart Advisers Ltd and CIO Najy Nasser outpaced the leading fund of hedge funds benchmarks for the 5(th) consecutive year. The Headstart Fund of Funds has annualised at +12.22% over the past 5 years with a Sharpe Ratio of 1.91, showing particularly impressive risk-adjusted returns. By comparison a leading fund of hedge funds index, the HFRI Fund of Funds Composite Index, has annualised just +4.77% over the same period. The strong outperformance of the Headstart Fund of Funds highlights the significant gulf between the premier managers and the industry as a whole. Headstart Advisers' CIO, Najy N. Nasser, commented: "We view ourselves as providing an alternative, stable source of returns for our investors as part of a diversified portfolio. The primary focus of our investment process is to build a diversified, liquid portfolio capable of investing across market cycles. We construct the portfolio with an emphasis on capturing alpha and dispersion in markets, not beta. "We are delighted to have been recognised for our strong performance. We are determined not to rest on our laurels and are both excited and focused on continuing to work hard as we embark on a new year, endeavouring to build on the Fund's successful 14 year history of producing attractive risk-adjusted returns."
