GMP Investment Management L.P. Has Traded Over $3.4 Billion of Restructured Canadian ABCP

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 26, 2011) - GMP Investment Management L.P. ("GMPIM") announced today that it has traded in excess of $3.4 billion of restructured Canadian Asset Backed Commercial Paper ("Canadian ABCP"). GMPIM first invested in restructured Canadian ABCP in 2008 in its flagship fund, the GMP Diversified Alpha Master Fund. On November 5, 2010, GMPIM launched the Canadian ABCP Fund LP (the "ABCP Fund") to exclusively invest in this asset. To date, GMPIM has raised approximately $130 million in the ABCP Fund and related investment vehicles dedicated solely to ABCP. Performance in the ABCP Fund has been strong, with a return in excess of 21% since inception.*

"In the last quarter, we have seen additional interest in restructured Canadian ABCP from a growing list of U.S. hedge funds and trading desks. Investors continue to search for superior risk-adjusted return opportunities and, according to our analysis, restructured Canadian ABCP is an extremely high-quality opportunity," said Greg Foss, Managing Partner of GMPIM. "In addition, with the passing of time, original holders of Canadian ABCP are benefitting from the meaningful increase in the liquidity of the Canadian ABCP market."

The ABCP Fund invests in securities from the Master Asset Vehicles ("MAV") that were created after the restructuring of the non‐bank‐sponsored Canadian Asset Backed Commercial Paper market in 2008. "In Canada, investors can invest in ABCP through the ABCP Fund – the only Canadian fund investing exclusively in restructured Canadian ABCP," said Kevin Barnes, President and Managing Partner of GMPIM.

The ABCP Fund offers investors another alternative to GMPIM's existing products, and adheres to GMPIM's overall investment goals, which are to preserve investors' capital, manage volatility and provide attractive returns.
