The strategy seeks to provide superior risk adjusted returns with low correlations to major asset classes and lower volatility than the S&P 500 Index.
We believe attractive event-driven investments exist in the global equity and credit markets due to the highly idiosyncratic nature of event-driven situations. Traditional market participants are often unwilling or unable to navigate the capital structure, legal, and regulatory complexity of event driven situations and/or may have discomfort with binary outcomes. The strategy seeks to exploit these market inefficiencies by applying a highly specialized event driven investing framework which enables us to identify the most attractive risk adjusted return opportunity for a given situation.
Cheers to Three Years! Congrats to our Driehaus Event Driven Team, Tom McCauley, Yoav Sharon and Mike Caldwell, on three years of managing the Event Driven Strategy. Thank you to our investors who have entrusted our team to execute our investment process in the pursuit of attractive risk-adjusted returns.
Financials Sector M&A is Back! After a notably quiet 2020, merger and acquisition activity in the financials sector has surged during the first half of 2021. We expect the accommodative deal environment will have multiple implications for the event driven landscape in the year ahead.
