Hedge Fund Manager Reorganizes, Rebrands and Launches New Event-Driven Fund
New York, May 30, 2012: Kellner DiLeo & Company, LLC, a more than three decade-old hedge fund manager, has been reorganized and renamed Kellner Capital, LLC (“the Firm”), and has launched a new event-driven investment fund. George Kellner, founder and CEO, said, “The Firm has experienced exciting changes and we thought it appropriate to rebrand the organization.”
The new fund launched with more than $50MM in assets. “We believe our investment process which combines rigorous fundamental research with volatility trading provides an edge as we focus on niche opportunities which are less followed and undiscovered,” said Mr. Kellner.
Mr. Kellner added that the Firm continues in its matched book securities lending partnership and that the organization also is exploring opportunities in the alternative mutual fund space for the near future “This is an exciting time to be a member of our Firm. We are in growth mode and the senior partners have all made a significant investment in our organization’s future,” Mr. Kellner said.
