Multi-Strategy: Event Driven
A team of six investment and finance professionals overlay event driven investment strategies, rigorous research driven stock selection, and disciplined risk management processes to identify and pursue opportunities with favorable risk adjusted return profiles.
The objectives of our firm and fundamental principles guiding our investment strategies include, but are not limited to:
- Alignment of interests between partners, employees and investors
- Disciplined focus on event driven and arbitrage investment strategies
- Lower volatility relative to peers and equity markets
- Low correlation to equity indices
- Absolute returns
Small cap securities are inefficient, volatile, and value exploitable. Our team is uniquely qualified to capitalize on these dynamics because of experience across a variety of relevant vantage points (IB, sales, and AM.) Our experience, combined with the relationships developed in these roles, position us to pursue opportunities and structures that are less common to most investors.
Specialized Skills: Understanding rules and structures, financial statements, M&A and corporate finance strategy, and regulatory/industry approvals. Trading Capabilities: ability to short sell, use of algorithmic software, block / agency trades, and size/liquidity flexibility. Key Relationships: Institutional investors, institutional and retail brokerages, bankers/lawyers, and management teams
