Ramius to Provide Seed Money for Margate Capital’s Long/Short Equity Strategy
To succeed, online stock traders need formidable asset management, investment skills and reliable stock trading software. Hedge fund investors face unique challenges including difficulty getting seed capital for their ventures. That’s why Samantha Greenberg made headlines when Cowen Group’s investment management business unit Ramius LLC decided to invest $130 million in Greenberg’s new hedge fund, Margate Capital. Ramius will render comprehensive support to help Margate achieve its goal of pursuing a long/short equity strategy across multiple sectors.
Samantha Greenberg is the managing partner and chief investment officer of Margate. With years of experience in providing online trading services, especially investment advisory management services and operation and management of hedge funds, she honed her equity investment skills when she was partner and media/consumer sector head on the investment team at Paulson & Co. Inc.
Margate Capital’s success in capturing the $130 million commitment is especially noteworthy because hedge fund managers have had a difficult time lately, with many losing money for investors. Hedge funds involve speculative investments and come with greater risks than the overall market. According to a recent CNBC report, in 2015, hedge funds saw their worst annual return since 2011, but some astute fund managers still managed to help their clients make decent profits.
