  1. 1. Hedge Fund Strategies 101: Event Driven Hedge Fund Fundamentals | January 2015
  2. 2. 2 Introduction Hedge funds offer qualified investors a unique partnership, with the ability to invest alongside them. While hedge funds first began as a way to offer investors a balanced - or market-neutral – approach to investing, the methods for delivering returns have evolved through the years. This presentation provides a brief overview of some of the strategies used by hedge funds in the marketplace today. Topics: • Investment Strategies • Event Driven • New Hedge Fund Partnerships • Resources
  3. 3. 1 3 Hedge funds offer investors a broad range of investment options. No two hedge funds are identical, but funds can be categorized broadly by the type of strategies they employ. While the individual investment decisions made by each fund vary, hedge funds are united by the same fundamental goals: • Portfolio Diversification- Prevents over-concentration in specific assets. • Risk Management – Helps anticipate and avoid volatility in the marketplace • Reliable Returns Over Time – Provides opportunities for asset growth Investment Strategies
  4. 4. 2 4 Event Driven Investment managers maintain positions in companies currently or prospectively involved in corporate transactions including mergers, restructurings, financial distress, tender offers, shareholder buybacks, debt exchanges, security issuance or other capital structure adjustments. Managers pursue strategies based on fundamental characteristics (as opposed to quantitative) and specific future developments. Position exposure includes a combination of sensitivities to equity markets, credit markets and company-specific developments. According to the 2014 Preqin Report on Hedge Funds, event driven funds account for a relatively small portion of the total existing active funds; However, they represent a larger proportion of the total capital managed by the industry – 12 percent of industry assets under management.

  5. 5. 3 5 Institutional Investors Seeking Out New Hedge Fund Partnerships According to Preqin’s 2014 Global Hedge Fund Report, investors expect to increase hedge fund allocations to their existing portfolios over the next 12 months.* Beyond multi-manager funds, public pension funds are the most active type of institutional investor seeking new hedge funds, with the proportion of the total number of fund mandates issued by this group rising throughout the year. This is in line with recent growth trends, which indicate that in 2007, around 196 public pension funds invested in hedge funds - today that number is around 377. The accompanying chart outlines how investors are expected to allocate – by strategy – over the next 12 months.** Source: 2014 Preqin Global Hedge Fund Report **Data for 2015 will be updated as soon as published.
