"Last year was particularly volatile, characterized by the most difficult market conditions since 2008," said Daniel S. Och, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Och-Ziff. "During 2011, the value of our consistent approach to investing and managing risk, our limited use of leverage and our strong infrastructure were clearly evident. We successfully protected investor capital and remained nimble as market conditions evolved. We believe that the degree of institutional differentiation we have achieved positions us to continue to attract new capital and grow as markets stabilize.

"Looking forward to 2012, we are optimistic about the investment landscape and our ability to generate consistent, positive absolute returns for our fund investors. We believe the dislocations created by the current environment will create opportunities for those investors with flexible capital to deploy."
