Driehaus Portfolio Manager Yoav Sharon joins 'Orion's The Weighing Machine' podcast to discuss event driven investing strategies

"When it comes to investing, there are many strategies that can be employed to achieve success. One of these is event-driven investing. At its core, this type of investing focuses on capitalizing on idiosyncratic corporate events and taking advantage of catalysts that can move stock prices.

In today’s episode, Rusty and Robyn talk with Yoav Sharon, Portfolio Manager at Driehaus Capital Management. Yoav has been in the investment management industry for more than 16 years. Prior to joining Driehaus Capital Management in 2012, he was a senior analyst and trader at Peak6 Investments. In his current role, Yoav is responsible for idea generation, portfolio construction, security selection, and investment research.

Yoav talks with Rusty and Robyn about what event-driven investing is, what the three different strategies within event-driven investing are, and how this differs from other alternative investments." - Orion's The Weighing Machine
