Thomas Ryan, CEO of Doddsville Investments (http://doddsvilleinvestments.com/), received his B.S. in Finance from Tulane University in 2000, and an M.B.A. at the University of Miami in May 2008 with a concentration in finance. Mr. Ryan approaches markets with a broad view of the economy, relatively simple investment themes and his analysis is not restricted by daily or weekly trading trends that sometimes plague financial institutions. He has traded his own portfolio with the same macro viewpoint he will use for the Fund. The Fund’s investment objective is to maximize long-term total returns, in variable market and economic conditions, while emphasizing preservation of capital. Over the past several years, the General Partner has been developing and refining a top-down macroeconomic approach to identify securities and indices that would be suitable for opportunistic investment. The General Partner focuses on general economic conditions in the United States and abroad, and based on broad themes and trends, analyzes whether certain pockets of various markets appear over or under valued, thus presenting opportunities to capitalize on imbalances. The General Partner’s strategy is directional, meaning its investments will be selected to go in a particular market direction and not be “market neutral.” As part of its macro-level approach, the General Partner incorporates both “qualitative” and “quantitative” principles to identify market conditions, entry and exit points and trading ranges and patterns with the goal of identifying attractive investment opportunities. For instance, it will qualitatively evaluate whether unrealistic assumptions are built into certain indices or pockets of the market and then use a quantitative approach to drive and monitor particular investments selections.
