The Event Strategy aims to be independent of the general economic environment and to produce returns that are correlated to specific event trades rather than to broader markets.
The Event Strategy is focused on generating attractive risk-adjusted returns through an event-driven mentality on the basis of two differentiated pillars which have been best performing over the years:
Proprietary Structured Trades
Special Arbitrage Opportunities
Value from Hard Catalyst
Mergers & Acquisitions
