GMP Investment Management L.P. Announces Launch of GMPIM Equity Opportunities Fund

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2011) - GMP Investment Management L.P. ("GMPIM") is pleased to announce the launch of the GMPIM Equity Opportunities Fund ("EOF").

The Equity Opportunities Fund is a long/short equity fund that focuses on the Canadian and U.S. investment universe. The EOF will adhere to GMPIM's overall investment goals, which are to preserve investors' capital, manage volatility and provide attractive returns. The Fund will implement five core strategies – with broad sector representation – able to take advantage of all market conditions. Portfolio Managers Keith McLean and Daniel McClure have over 30 years of combined capital markets experience and will manage the fund.

"The objective of the EOF is to generate superior risk-adjusted returns over the long term, by utilizing a proven and disciplined investment approach – our proprietary Cyclical and Quantitative Investment ("CQI") process," said Kevin Barnes, President. "Our CQI process is the key to identifying the best opportunities in a vast investment universe."

The same acumen, strategy and risk controls featured in the EOF have been core components of GMPIM's flagship fund, GMP Diversified Alpha Master Fund, which has a return, since inception, of 30.21%*.

"In the EOF we offer investors a compelling equity investment opportunity: the skill and experience of Keith and Dan, an attractive return potential, a tax-efficient structure, weekly liquidity and the management of equity market volatility," added Barnes.
