Peter A. Cohen, Chairman and CEO of Cowen Group said, "In what continues to be a challenging market, we are proud to report a profitable third quarter and another record revenue quarter. This is a result of the progress we have made in elevating the results in each of our operating businesses. The broker dealer benefited from a favorable capital raising environment for equities and had its best quarter for debt raising. At Ramius, we continue to raise assets, produce solid investment performance and launch new products, including the Ramius Event Driven Equity Fund, our fourth alternative mutual fund."
