Ramius Hires Marketer For Liquid Alts.

Feb 16 2012 | 2:41am ET

Hedge fund Ramius has added a two-decade financial industry veteran to its marketing and distribution team.

Ken Griebell was named a director at the Cowen Group subsidiary. Griebell will focus on marketing and distribution of Ramius' liquid alternative products from the firm's New York office.

Gribell joins Ramius from Equinox Fund Management, where he was managing director of strategic accounts.

"Ken’s extensive relationships and expertise in distributing liquid alternatives will be invaluable as we market our diverse portfolio of alternative investment products to investors, including financial advisors and their clients, many of whom have historically had limited access to these products and strategies," Ramius CEO Thomas Strauss said. "Ramius’ institutional caliber liquid alternative products allow access to an important asset class for the mass affluent retail client and we look forward to building upon Ken’s experience and relationships to offer these products to this clientele."
