GRT Capital Partners launches a short-only healthcare strategy fund

Monday, November 01, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - Boston-based GRT Capital Partners has launched a short-only healthcare strategy. This strategy will invest in publicly traded securities of health care companies. The investment strategy will involve straightforward health care stock selection based upon detailed individual company fundamental analysis by the portfolio manager, John Borzilleri, MD, MBA.

The short-only strategy highlights Dr. Borzilleri’s ability on the short side of the long/short equity health care strategy launched August 2003.

“Healthcare is an attractive area for shorting stocks - considerable market inefficiencies can lead to extreme valuations for fundamentally unsound companies. We believe our long-term success in shorting healthcare stocks can provide investors with a unique strategy to generate strong absolute returns, serve as a unique source of alpha, and diversify conventional investment portfolios,” Dr Borzilleri said.

John R. Borzilleri, MD is the founding portfolio manager for both the GRT Health Care LP and the newly launched short-only healthcare strategy. Dr. Borzilleri is an award-winning fund manager with over 20 years experience in health care investment and a broad multi-sector analytical background. Dr. Borzilleri received his MD from New York University in 1985 and trained and practiced as a physician before earning his MBA from Columbia University in 1991. Prior to launching the GRT Health Care long/short strategy in 2003, Borzilleri was a Senior Healthcare Portfolio Manager and Analyst from 1997-2003 at State Street Research and Management, which was acquired by BlackRock, Inc. in 2005.
