Ramius And Ramius Global Credit Portfolio Managers To Extend Partnership

Ramius LLC, the global investment management business of Cowen Group, Inc. (“Cowen”) (NASDAQ: COWN), today announced that it will enter into a long-term extension of its partnership with portfolio managers, Norman Milner and D. Richard Dowdle.

Thomas W. Strauss, President and CEO of Ramius LLC said, “It is a part of Ramius’s strategy to enable successful portfolio managers to become partners in their businesses while maintaining a significant interest in their continued successes. We believe this partnership will allow for broader opportunities for the business and its investors going forward.”

The funds managed by Messrs. Milner and Dowdle will operate under the name Orchard Square Partners, and will remain committed to operating a global long/short credit strategy, with a focus on long-term capital appreciation and capital preservation through challenging markets.

Norman Milner said, “We believe that the current environment in global long/short credit provides investors with an attractive opportunity to deploy capital defensively and we look forward to pursuing those investments under our new brand. We are pleased to extend our partnership with Ramius, both as an investor and for the operational and distribution platform they will provide for the funds.”

Since inception in 1994, Ramius has assembled a strong group of portfolio managers supported by institutional quality operational and technology infrastructure and has developed a firm wide commitment to excellence in client service.
