INVESTORS in the Quantum Emerging Growth Fund have seen their money more than double over the last year.

According to a report by statisticians Micropal, the fund has seen a 103.34 per cent rise over the last year.

In their Emerging Market Fund Monitor newsletter, Micropal maintains that due to the secretiveness of the fund's managers - New York-based Soros Fund Management - pin-pointing which markets or stocks contributed to the performance is difficult.

But according to the fund's June quarterly report, the fund's largest equity exposure was in Asia - which exceeded Latin America by a margin of over 2:1.
