New York (HedgeCo.net) – Boston-based hedge fund and alternative asset manager, GMB Capital Management, LLC., has changed its name to ClearStream Investments, LLC (ClearStream). Simultaneously, the firm announced the broadening of its executive management team, to include Rohit Vohra as newly appointed CEO, and relocation to new corporate headquarters in Boston.
“ClearStream Investments is committed to furthering the principal objectives of investment success that have been the hallmarks of our firm since its founding,” said Dr. Gabriel Bitran, the firm’s Founder and Chief Investment Officer. “We are excited to announce the appointment of Rohit Vohra as our Chief Executive Officer. He brings over 10 years of institutional wealth management experience to ClearStream, and is a wonderful addition to our team. Rohit has a vision for ClearStream, centered around the transparency of our strategy and liquidity of our product offerings, that will lead us into the next phase of growth and the broadening of our franchise.”
Joining Vohra and Dr. Bitran as ClearStream executives are Marco Bitran, portfolio manager, and Dr. Shioulin Sam, Director of Quantitative Research.
“The ClearStream name highlights the firm’s commitment to offering our strategies through transparent and liquid managed accounts, which we believe are highly preferable to the end investor, vs. other less transparent structures. We hope to remain at the forefront of the industry in this regard,” said Marco Bitran.
Founded in 2005 by Gabriel Bitran, and joined shortly thereafter by his son Marco, ClearStream built its reputation and asset base through the application of Optimal Pricing principles to investment management. ClearStream’s models attempt to predict the supply and demand balance across global markets, using US-listed ETFs, and are not dependent on fundamental data used in traditional methods to value equity, fixed income and other asset classes. The firm’s quantitative models scour world markets searching for pricing anomalies that predict the directionality of the securities in which ClearStream invests. The firm currently manages approximately $550 million in assets.
