Purchase
Timing:  The stock is slightly below its six month high.
Reason:  We have very little exposure to the financial sector. Greenhill is growing rapidly. The mix of M&A and restructuring advising services is attractive, as the two lines of business tend to peak at different times. There is a trend toward firms seeking out indpendent advisors, and we believe that Greenhill will benefit from this trend.

Sale
Timing:  
Reason:  Greenhill is very volatile. It has reached our price target.
