Strategy Research - Event Driven

With 2017 proving another strong year for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) volumes, Event Driven investors will be forgiven for being disappointed with mediocre, although positive returns at the index level. However, underneath this, several funds turned in strong years in 2017 with others falling substantially. Indeed, returns ranged from -19.0% to +19.5% in 2017, proving how diverse the Event Driven sector is. To help investors navigate this, we categorise funds into three sub-groups: Merger Arbitrage, Merger Event, and Event Driven. This note explores the differences between these sub-indices as well as highlighting some of the funds available in this space.
