*GreatNordicCapital's assets under management fell from $195 billion to $82 billion between 2007 and 2009. This reduction in assets did not represent net client withdrawals. Rather, it reflected GreatNordicCapital and its clients agreeing to shift its management of traditional accounts that require more funding to its highly diversified firtsinvest fund, which requires less funding. The total size of positions which GreatNordicCapital holds on behalf of its clients is approximately the same even though actual amounts deposited are less.
