Altin AG

Appointment of Broker

Altin AG 
14 October 2002

                                                                   PRESS RELEASE

ALTIN appoints UBS Warburg as corporate broker

Baar, 14 October 2002 - ALTIN AG (ALTIwq.L), the largest fund of hedge funds
listed as an investment company on the London Stock Exchange, announces today
the appointment of UBS Warburg as the company's sole corporate broker.

UBS Warburg's access to global and pan-European investors is expected to enhance
ALTIN's visibility among investors and increase trading liquidity. In addition
to UBS Warburg, Deutsche Bank and HSBC Securities are market makers in ALTIN

ALTIN is one of the leading Swiss alternative investment companies and is traded
both on the London Stock Exchange (since December 2001) and the Zurich Stock
Exchange (since December 1996). 3A - Alternative Asset Advisors, part of the
Swiss banking group SYZ & CO and one of the top Swiss alternative investment
specialists, is the Investment Manager for ALTIN.

ALTIN allocates its assets to a range of funds (currently 30) with an aim to
deliver capital appreciation and to achieve a superior risk adjusted performance
with a lower volatility than equity markets.

In the year to date, ALTIN recorded a 3.73% increase in its NAV (estimate as of
04.10.2002). This performance was obtained with a much lower volatility than
that in equity markets (7.14% for ALTIN vs. 16.09% for the MSCI World index).
The extremely low correlation to equity markets (0.05) demonstrated by the share
price of ALTIN, makes it an ideal diversification instrument within a
traditional portfolio.
