By February 4, 2009 No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW YORK – Welton Investment Corporation (‘Welton’), today announced plans to open a New York office in 2009, to be overseen by Justin Dew, who has joined the firm as Senior Managing Director of Strategic Development.

The expansion is due to the firm’s growth and increasing investor base in New York, Europe and the Middle East.

“We are excited to have a presence in New York and see this expansion as an evolution of our business,” said Patrick Welton, Chief Executive Officer.  “We are delighted to have Justin on board. He brings a diverse industry background and solid understanding of the true role of alternative investments.”

“It’s an honor to help Welton take their business to the next level,” said Mr. Dew. “Coming off a year in which most strategies lost money, this is a perfect time to educate investors about the merits and benefits of managed futures.
Managed futures were one of the few hedge fund strategies to perform in 2008 and once again displayed non- correlation with the broader markets. Managed futures gained 13.90% in 2008, according to the Barclay CTA Index compiled by BarclayHedge.

Mr. Dew will assist senior management in the strategic development of the firm, in part by identifying new and innovative strategic growth opportunities and strengthening and further diversifying the client base.

Mr. Dew was Managing Director and Head of Strategic Development of Clinton Group, Inc. in New York where he was responsible for development of new investment strategies, investor relations and sales. Prior to Clinton Group, Mr. Dew served as the Senior Director and Global Head of Alternative Strategies of Standard & Poor’s in New York. Mr. Dew received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Ithaca College and his Masters in Business Administration from Cornell University.
