Och-Ziff Capital Management's first-quarter profit more than doubled as the firm enjoyed inflows and higher fee income.

The New York-based hedge fund said its distributable earnings were $136.9 million, up from $57.3 million in the year-earlier period. The publicly-listed firm's assets jumped 16% to $35 billion year-on-year, and continued growing into the second quarter, adding a further $600 million in April.

Revenue soared 92% to $270.4 million. Och-Ziff's profit under generally accepted accounting principles, which includes some costs associated with its 2007 initial public offering, rose to $26.1 million, from a $122.7 million loss a year earlier.
