Nov 1 2006 | 7:47am ET

GEM Capital, the manager of the Belvedere Advantaged Muni Fund, has hired Talia Williams to manage the firm’s operations and to coordinate the launch of two new GEM municipal bond arbitrage funds in the next few months.

In addition to the two new funds one a private label offering the firm is preparing, Williams says she and the firm "definitely anticipate growth" at its flagship Belvedere Fund.

Williams, who is located in GEM’s Belvedere, Calif., office, says she may also be involved in supporting the efforts of the firm’s affiliate, Blue River Asset Management.

Prior to joining fund of funds manager GEM, Williams spent three years with Goldman Sachs, most recently as a software applications project manager and an analyst in the firm's managed account services business.
