Galtere Hires GE, Macquarie Commodity Analysts

May 3 2011 | 4:05am ET

Commodity hedge fund shop Galtere has added a pair of research analysts to its team.

The New York-based firm said that Geoff Fila and Maziar Brumand have come on board to cover "the fundamental supply and demand factors driving commodity markets." Fila joins from GE Asset Management, where he was assistant portfolio manager of commodity funds. Brumand comes to Galtere from Macquarie Capital, where he was a commodity and equity analyst, most recently covering metals and mining. Brumand also formerly worked at the Harbert Commodity Fund.

"We are a commodity-focused fund and together with the Galtere Research and Development Center and Galtere Alternative Energy Center, this team provides me with a  very detailed, bottom-up analysis of the commodity markets, from the agriculture complex to base and precious metals, to the fossil fuel and alternative energy markets," Galtere founder Renee Haugerud said.
