AUSPICE DIVERSIFIED PROGRAM ADDED TO SCOTIA CAPITAL CANADIAN HEDGE FUND PERFORMANCE INDEX

CALGARY, June 7, 2011 /CNW/ - Auspice Capital Advisors. Ltd. is pleased to announce that the Auspice Diversified Program (Auspice Managed Futures LP), a managed futures strategy, is now a component of the Scotia Capital Canadian Hedge Fund Performance Index.

The aim of the Scotia Capital Canadian Hedge Fund Performance Index is to provide a comprehensive overview of the Canadian Hedge Fund universe. To achieve this, index returns are calculated using both an equal weighting and asset weighting of the funds. The index includes both open and closed funds with a minimum AUM of $15 million and at least a 12-month track record of returns, managed by Canadian‐domiciled hedge fund managers.

Tim Pickering, President and lead portfolio manager for Auspice Capital Advisors states, "We are pleased to be included in the Scotia Capital Canadian Hedge Fund Performance Index. The Scotia Index highlights the significant outperformance of Canadian hedge fund managers relative to our global peers. The inclusion of the Auspice Diversified Program in the Index is another example of our growing presence in the Canadian investment landscape."

Auspice is more than a traditional CTA providing Alpha and Enhanced Beta managed futures strategies to institutions, family offices, and high net worth investors. On the Alpha side, the flagship Auspice Diversified Program is a diversified trend following strategy with a five-year track record. The Auspice Energy Program, which will begin trading June 2011, is a multi-strategy multi-timeframe approach to global energies. On the Enhanced Beta side, Auspice is the creator of the NYSE-listed Auspice Broad Commodity Indices and the Auspice Managed Futures Indices.

Auspice manages $250 mm in AUM through in-house products and sub-advisory relationships. Auspice is the sub-advisor for the Claymore Natural GAS ETF and Claymore Broad Commodity ETF.
