"The first half year results are satisfactory, but they were clearly carried by the performance fees which cannot be planned in advance, and will come to bear when the C-QUADRAT funds reach new peaks. Due to the currently very volatile activities on the stock markets, we cannot assume similar development of the business in the second half of the year". These are the comments of Alexander Schütz, the C-QUADRAT founder and Management Board Member, regarding the half year results of the company.
