Ramius' Sussman Talks Manager Research and Marketing

Reported by Anastasia Donde

Ramius's new head of liquid alternatives has been quite busy on his first four months on the job.

Bradley Sussman
Director of Liquid Alternatives
Bradley Sussman, who was previously Managing Director and Hedge Fund Strategist at Merrill Lynch, is now using his expertise in alternative manager research to find sub-advisors for the $9 billion hedge fund firm's new and upcoming alternative mutual funds. He's also working on a series of educational and marketing materials to deliver to retail investors on alts.

The firm launched the Ramius Hedged Alpha Fund in July, 2010, the Ramius Trading Strategies Managed Futures Fund in Sept., 2011, the Ramius Strategic Volatility Fund in October, 2012 and the Ramius Event-Driven Equity Fund last fall. All these are managed by Ramius' portfolio managers internally, but the firm will be looking to add sub-advisors as it expands its product lineup in the liquid alternatives space, Sussman explained.

While speaking at IIR's Liquid Alternative Strategies West conference last week, Sussman also said the firm is working on more educational and marketing materials to deliver to investors and advisors. "We're putting out implementation guides and white papers soon," he said. The firm will also offer monthly portfolio updates on its strategies and Sussman said some of its underlying managers are creating products in the space.
