NEW YORK, June 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
G2 Investment Group, a firm that provides investment management, advisory and other financial services to institutional investors and private clients around the world announced the launch today of its affiliate, G2 Natural Resources, LLC.
J. Todd Morley, Chairman and CEO of G2 Investment Group, said "Given the frightening state of U.S. and European fiscal and monetary policy and the resulting risk of devaluation of our currencies and debts, G2 Natural Resources is committed to investing in real assets which already include shale gas and early stage gold and copper mines. We will soon be adding a commodities trading capacity. We will be particularly focused on evolving markets. Perhaps the best example of this is shale gas, which has the potential to revolutionize energy markets."
G2 Natural Resources will be led by Douglas Wu, co-founder and CEO, who has had over 25 years experience as a private equity and hedge fund investor in natural resources and related industries. G2 Natural Resources has invested in early stage mining opportunities in Chile, Colombia, Turkey and the Ukraine with experienced management teams that have a strong track record of having found large resources and effected successful exit strategies. Juan Villarzu, Chairman of AMG Minerals, Inc. and former Chairman and CEO of Codelco, a large Chilean copper company, said "We are delighted to be working with G2 Natural Resources in finding and capitalizing on exciting early stage opportunities that can offer outsized returns. Given the volatility in the commodity markets, getting in early is key to mitigating risk and maximizing returns."
G2 Investment Group is an independent, privately-owned financial services firm established by J. Todd Morley and partners. G2 has over 60 professionals offering investment management, advisory, and other financial services to institutional and private clients around the world. Prior to founding G2, Morley was co-founder of Guggenheim Partners, a financial services firm with over $100 billion of assets under supervision.
