Brevan Howard, with $36 billion in assets under management as of the end of Q2 2012, is the second-largest hedge fund provider in Europe. The Brevan Howard Emerging Markets Local Fixed Income strategy is an actively managed liquid strategy that seeks exposure to fixed income returns primarily in global emerging markets in the Asia and Pacific region, Africa, Eastern Europe (including Russia) and Latin America. The strategy takes actively managed exposures to fixed income securities and currencies and predominantly invests in government bond and financial derivative instruments referencing interest rates and currencies.

The Altegris Macro Strategy Fund employs two principal strategies—global macro and fixed income—and relies on investment adviser asset allocation and investment skill to allocate among global macro strategies that predominantly use fundamental macroeconomic data in a discretionary or systematic investment style with a bias toward foreign exchange.
 
As of September 30, 2012 it had AUM of $393.6 million.
