Galbraith Capital Lists Its Global Strategies Fund on the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2011) - Galbraith Capital has listed its Global Strategies Fund on the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace (AGM)™. Pairing state-of-the-art technology with daily independent pricing and reconciliation of portfolio information, advanced analytics, risk reporting and monitoring and a rigorous ongoing background investigation, the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace positions investors and prospects to benefit greatly from increased transparency, information flow and control over their investment in a manager's flagship fund.

"Galbraith Capital is excited to participate in listing our fund on AGM. We have long believed that it is of paramount importance to provide investors with transparency into our trading and stringent risk management," said Matt Aptman, Senior Vice President at Galbraith Capital. "The thoroughness with which AlphaMetrix has conducted their diligence substantiates their commitment to make AGM the premier marketplace for investors to evaluate funds. Galbraith Capital expects that by listing on the platform, potential investors will have better insight into our fund which will in turn translate into allocations from the right investors."

"Adding Galbraith Capital to AGM is a significant achievement," said Mikus Kins, Executive Director, Head of Business Development at AlphaMetrix. "Galbraith's continued ability to deliver strong performance and their willingness to provide investors and prospects additional levels of independently derived portfolio information and transparency serves to differentiate the manager from its peer group. Our objective is to find best of class managers to offer within the Marketplace -- listing Galbraith's flagship fund certainly aids in achieving that objective."

About Galbraith Capital

Founded in 2006, Galbraith Capital is a multi-strategy hedge fund firm focused on capturing unique global arbitrage opportunities. Presently, Galbraith manages $150 million of capital on behalf of a global client base consisting of Pensions, Endowments, Fund of Funds, Family Offices and High Net Worth investors.

The firm's flagship fund, Galbraith Global Strategies (GGS), implements a market neutral approach to exploit pricing inefficiencies driven by predictable market behavior. Market anomalies are captured through index arbitrage, ETF arbitrage and statistical arbitrage. Risk to the portfolio is mitigated by actively beta hedging the portfolio, investing only in highly liquid instruments, holding trades for a short duration and implementing prudent position and portfolio constraints. Though the sub-strategies are spawned from similar market phenomena, the returns generated of each are uncorrelated to each other.
