“Last year was a very strong year for us, both on an absolute and a relative basis,” says Daniel Och, chairman and chief executive officer of Och-Ziff. “We surpassed the high-water marks on our assets under management, with our Oz Master Fund having one of its best years ever and our Asia Master Fund achieving record performance. We maintained a disciplined focus on our long-standing investment and risk management processes which, when combined with the flexibility of our multi-strategy approach and the stability of our model, was central to the strength of our returns last year. We believe these attributes, which have continued to serve us well in 2010, position us to generate strong performance for our fund investors over the long term.”
