The BlueCrest AllBlue fund returned 1.99 per cent for the six month period to 30 June, 2011, according to results released by the company.

During the first half of the year BlueCrest Capital International, with its focus on interest rate trading, has been the largest single contributor to the performance of AllBlue, the fund into which the company invests, and has been held as the highest allocation within the portfolio.

The key contributors to the performance of the company in the reporting period were the following underlying funds: BlueCrest Capital International generated a return of 2.64% for the first half of 2011; BlueTrend generated a return of 1.88% for the first half of 2011; BlueCrest Multi Strategy Credit generated a return of 2.74% for the first half of 201; while BlueMatrix generated a return of 3.32% for the first half of 2011.

Richard Crowder, Chairman of the company, says: “Following a satisfactory year in 2010, the Company has continued to deliver positive financial performance during the first six months of 2011 despite challenging market conditions. With an uncertain backdrop trading strategies have faced a challenging environment where markets have been driven by political factors, often resulting in severe dislocations.  During this time BlueCrest has continued to focus on limiting downside risk and preserving investor capital, whilst taking advantage of trading opportunities that have presented themselves.”
