Event / Structured Trades

Key Features

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

  • Since inception, Tyrus Capital has invested more than $3.5bn in proprietary Structured Trades
  • The strategy looks to finance complex but rewarding turnarounds in structures that offer downside protection, yield and equity optionality

Special Arbitrage Opportunities

  • Wide range, spanning across engineered trades with Delta One hedges, to Dutch auctions and to other arbitrage situations, which are sourced and structured to limit downside risk

Additional Strategies

Value from Hard Catalyst

  • Seeks to capture value creation from deals that take time to be recognised by the market
  • Positions are less correlated to the market for a specific period of time
  • Includes takeovers, spin-offs, deleveraging, restructurings, privatisations, share buy backs, capital raising, rights issues and other transformational deals

Mergers & Acquisitions

  • Seeks to identify situations with optionality while avoiding plain vanilla traditional spreads with large downside

Dislocation Trades

  • Broken deals
  • Transformational events
  • Technical factors
