NEW YORK, April 8, 2008 — Shoreline Trading Group, a leading provider of prime brokerage and agency execution services to emerging and established hedge funds announced today that it is expanding its prime brokerage sales operations. The move is designed to leverage the firm’s already established presence in the market and to provide funds with the experience and expertise needed to navigate current market conditions.

The firm has added industry veteran Donald Marigliano to its prime brokerage sales team.

Mr. Marigliano brings 20 years experience to the position. Prior to joining Shoreline Trading Group he served in senior positions at Goldman Sachs, Neuberger Berman and most recently Lehman Brothers, where he focused on various business lines ranging from emerging managers to multi-billion dollar funds.

Said Mike Murray, principal at Shoreline Trading Group: “Today’s market dislocations have left many managers apprehensive about the near and longer term future. We are confident that our clients will benefit from our stability. Our custody, execution, clearing and reporting services provided through Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse and Bear Stearns, enable us to assure clients that their operations will likely not be impacted by current market dislocations.

“Don brings to our firm the breadth and depth of experience that parallels our already established relationships with top tier investment firms. Our boutique approach is designed to give each of our clients access to senior talent and best-of-breed services. The combination allows them to focus on building their businesses rather than focusing on operations.”

Said Donald Marigliano: “Shoreline Trading Group represents an opportunity for managers to access the service capabilities currently available primarily to larger funds. Our strategy is to enable managers to focus on expanding alpha and assets under management with tools that build to excellence.”
