A New Growth Path for Crystalline Management Merging the Activities of Sigma Alpha Capital with our Operations

Crystalline Management is pleased to announce that effective November 1st 2014 it has integrated the activities of Sigma Alpha Capital into our line-up of alternative offerings. Sigma Alpha Capital, founded in September 2004 by André Marsan, has been offering a Global Macro investment strategy to managed account clients for over 10 years. The historical risk / return profile, comparable to that of our flagship Amethyst Arbitrage Fund, as well as the particularly low correlations between the two strategies prompted discussions between the groups.

The transaction increases Crystalline’s assets under management, as well as bolsters the roll-out of a similar strategy, which has been in development internally since the arrival of Mathieu Lachance in the fall of 2012. The new Sigma Alpha division of Crystalline, overseen by André Marsan, will include Luc Lapointe who will be joined by Mathieu and his systemic approach. Mathieu however retains management of the fixed income arbitrage portion of the Amethyst Arbitrage Fund. The management of the Global Macro strategy will remain entirely separate from the arbitrage product.

By leveraging its new combined talent, Crystalline intends to launch a new Global Macro investment fund in mid-2015 targeting both institutional and private clients. Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information.
