TORONTO, Feb. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - Bull Wealth Management Group Inc. ("BULLWEALTH") announced today that it has been named "Best Alternative Investment Analysis Firm – Canada" by the BarclayHedge 2015 Hedge Fund Awards. Siobhan Hanley, a spokesperson for the awards, described how the winners are determined, "It's not easy to determine the winners in these immensely popular global awards. We receive literally thousands of nominations from industry experts, clients and peers and spend months gathering votes, painstakingly researching all nominees and collating all relevant information so that we can fairly and accurately determine our worthy winners."
BULLWEALTH's President and CEO Martin Sims, commented that "This award validates our leadership position in hedge fund and alternative investment due diligence and complements our industry leading due diligence of long only investment managers. Winning this award is due to the efforts of Dr. Peter Klein and his team. Having someone with Peter's academic credentials and industry experience adds rigour and strength to our value proposition as Canada's preeminent, independent advisory and consulting firm." BULLWEALTH purchased Klein's KCS Fund Strategies business last July and Klein joined the firm as a Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer. Klein is also a tenured professor of finance at The Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University and one of Canada's leading alternative investment authorities.

Jim founded BULLWEALTH after founding and managing Ernst & Young LLP's Investment Advisory Services.
