Michael Singer, Chief Executive Officer of Ramius, commented, “As we continue to build out our suite of liquid alternative products which currently includes our Volatility, Managed Futures and Replication Alternative Mutual Funds, we are pleased to have Brian and Greg join our team. Alternative mutual funds are a relatively new concept for many investors and advisors, but their growth in number and strategies has been significant over the last few years. At Ramius, we are committed to offering best-in-breed liquid alternative strategies to financial advisors and their clients.”

David Thill said, “Both Brian and Greg have deep relationships with broker-dealers and intermediaries and will help to educate investors about Ramius and our suite of products. I look forward to working with them in their new roles.”
