FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CALIFORNIA — Welton Investment Corporation, a leading alternative investment manager specializing in quantitative global macro strategies, today announced that it joined the Hedge Funds Standards Board (‘HFSB’), a standard setting body for the hedge fund industry, as a signatory member.

The HFSB brings together managers, investors, regulators and consultants from around the world to help determine how the hedge fund industry should operate.  Over 106 Hedge Fund Managers so far have committed to the Standards accounting for over USD 500bn in AUM.  Around 60 major international investors, including pension and endowment funds, sovereign wealth funds and funds of funds, have embraced the HFSB as members of the Investor Chapter to drive adoption of the Standards.  Voluntary membership re-affirms each manager’s commitment to their investors, operating within a framework of transparency, integrity and good governance.

“We are enthusiastic supporters of the Hedge Fund Standards framework,” said Guillaume Detrait, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Enterprise Risk Officer.  “We have spent years attempting to identify and conform to the evolving best-practices within our industry – all thanks to the guidance and feedback of our investors, consultants, peers, surveys and publications.  The HFSB’s Standards do an excellent job of capturing this institutional learning for all, which should benefit the industry and investors alike.”
