Event driven investing and its applications - Workshop 2018

My Offerings


Event-driven investing is a hedge fund investment strategy that seeks to capture pricing inefficiencies that may occur before or after a corporate event, such as spin-off, merger, sale of assets, privatisation.

Event-driven investing is rarely used by traditional equity investors because of the liquidity and market capitalisation requirements stated in the investment mandate. However, for knowledgeable and flexible investors, such as professional investors, hedge fund managers and high net worth individuals, event-driven investing not only help enhance portfolio returns but also provide well diversification to traditional asset classes.

Key topics covered:

• What is Event-driven Investing?
• How to use a rule-based, bottom-up selection process to spot event-driven investment opportunities?
• Case study on corporate events such as mergers, spin-offs and privatisation, etc.
