LONDON, January 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Posting another double-digit year and building on the Fund's 13 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 4th consecutive year.

The Headstart Fund of Funds returned an estimated +11.21% in 2012 and has returned +54.26% from 1st January 2009 at an annualised rate of +11.45% with a Sharpe Ratio of 1.63. By comparison a leading fund of hedge funds index, the HFRI Fund of Funds Composite Index, returned +5.25% in 2012 and has returned 16.92% from 1st January 2009 at an annualised rate of 3.99% with a Sharpe Ratio of 0.88.

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: "The Headstart Fund of Funds has continued to produce steady returns, with controlled volatility at a time when interest rates are at record lows during what has been a challenging period for market participants.

"Whilst the health of the global economy and political developments across Europe and the U.S have dominated headlines and resulted in increased uncertainty in markets over the past year, the portfolio has shown its ability to successfully adapt to the environment.

"We will continue to work hard as we embark on a new year and endeavour to build on the Fund's successful 13 year history of producing attractive risk-adjusted returns."
