"We are pleased to add the MMCAP to the Spartan alternative investment strategies line-up. MMCAP’s investment team, lead by Hillel Meltz, Matt MacIsaac and David Jeffrey, has achieved exceptional results over almost 14 years and the Fund has already been very well received by Canadian investors and advisors.", states Gary Ostoich, President of Spartan Fund Management.
