New Fund Will Seek out Value and Opportunities in Emerging Markets

LONDON, January 5, 2011 - With growing investor interest in emerging markets and following on from
the success of its Limestone Wider Russia Fund, Headstart Advisers has
launched the new Limestone Global Emerging Markets Fund.

The fund will look to exploit the inherent value and growth in emerging
markets as the world undergoes a huge shift in wealth away from the developed
markets to the thriving, less indebted emerging markets in the developing

The fund will have a medium term investment horizon seeking capital
appreciation with a focus on liquidity and Headstart's in depth proprietary

There will initially be a bias to the liquid markets of the BRICs
(Brazil, Russia, India and China) but the new Headstart Advisers fund will
also invest across all emerging markets where there is value and opportunity.
The fund will rely on the core competency of Najy Nasser, Headstart Adviser's
Chief Investment Officer, to analyse market movements combined with
Headstart's in depth research and risk management.

Najy Nasser, CIO of Headstart Advisers, said: "In recent years Headstart
Advisers has fully recognised the opportunity in emerging markets and our
Wider Russia Fund has been a real success. This new, broader Emerging Markets
Fund will be a direct fund investing in the individual companies who will be
the winners as their home markets grow. We believe this new Headstart fund is
a natural progression for us which will be positioned to perform well as the
Emerging Markets' share of Global GDP continues to increase."
