Zurich, 13 October 2015

* Cayman fund administration business was part of GAM's Private Labelling
business
* Sale is in line with the aim to focus GAM's activities on its core
strengths
* All 14 employees will transfer to JTC Group

GAM today announced the sale of its fund administration business in the Cayman
Islands to JTC Group, a provider of institutional and private client
services.

GAM's Private Labelling business has been offering fund and outsourcing
solutions to third parties since 1992, mainly out of Switzerland. The
disposal of the Cayman fund administration business reflects the company's
intention to focus on its role as general contractor for private label
solutions and the provision of management company services for funds
domiciled in Europe. It is also in line with the announcement made at the
half-year results presentation in August to focus GAM's activities on its
core strengths within Investment Management and the private labelling
business.

The team in Cayman, which consists of 14 staff in total, will transfer and
continue to be employed with JTC Group. Once approved by the local regulator,
all business activities will transfer to JTC. The transaction is expected to
close in late 2015. The impact on the Group's assets under management and the
2015 financial results is immaterial.
