Press Release Summary: CTA Firm adopts turn-key risk management solution to aid in
the analysis and execution of hedging program for solution to Operational and Market

Press Release Body: TORONTO, Canada - Feb 21, 2008 -- CTA firm Genuine Trading
Solutions announces an enhanced product line from traditional trading services
performed by majority of CTA\'s.

Genuine Trading Solutions President and CEO, Dwayne Strocen said today \"The
financial services industry is constantly adapting to a changing world climate. The
collection of hedge funds, pension funds, trusts, endowments and corporations
throughout North America and the world are adapting to the more sophisticated
demands of their unit holders by including risk management analytics to their equity
and fixed income portfolios.\"

It has been widely known that while the largest institutions employ their own
traders and risk management departments, most funds employ outside trading
specialists to aid in fund diversification. The fund manager looks for specialist
trading styles, expecting the Portfolio Manager to integrate risk management
solutions to off-set unexpected market and currency issues.

Experience has taught us that due to the Portfolio Managers inability to
consistently remain in the top quartile, fund managers are increasingly taking
control of these risk requirements on an aggregate of their fund assets. The onset
of this epiphany leads to the question of where to turn for help.

There is no shortage of risk specialists and no shortage of traders. Now Genuine
Trading Solutions is announcing a turn key solution to both the identification and
analytics for determining the risk threat but also the execution of the subsequent
risk off-set, known as a hedge.

Hedging is a term used to refer to the process of reducing risk brought about by
unexpected liabilities. Derivatives, either exchange traded or over the counter
\"OTC\" are commonly used in reducing or eliminating this risk. The use of
derivatives is regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (\"CFTC\"). As
such, registered CTA firms such as ours provide a vital service in the analytics and
execution of derivative products for either capital gain or eliminating risk.

President and CEO, Dwayne Strocen, says the most common services requested are
inter-connected to Market Risk. Usually liabilities related to adverse market
conditions such as equity, fixed income, or interest rates are of greatest concern
to financial firms. Next, commodity basis hedging is often requested to preserve
gains in areas such as energy products, precious metals, agriculture and many other
products. Operational Risk is next with currency or foreign exchange being the
primary source of uncertainty for companies. These can be capital projects,
overseas branch office salaries paid in foreign denominated currency. Purchase of
goods in one currency and sales of finished product in another.

\"We are pleased to extend our expertise into this exciting field of growth and share
in the success of our international client base\", says Dwayne Strocen,- President
and CEO
