Collaborative Portfolio Management

The Portfolio Committee (PC) is responsible for managing the Firm’s multi-strategy platform in a dynamic process that incorporates the diverse views, opinions and expertise of our most senior investment leadership.

The composition of the PC’s membership enables our multi-strategy platform to allocate capital quickly and thoughtfully to what we believe to be the best ideas. Investment professionals across our global investment team are responsible for identifying dislocations and opportunities at the security, asset class and geographic level. Extensive due diligence is conducted on individual companies and situations. The PC evaluates and compares individual investments and the overall opportunity set in each geography and strategy to shape allocation and positioning, with the goal of constructing diversified, optimized portfolios. Risk is monitored via a rigorous top-down approach, with a combination of quantitative and qualitative tools, in order to assess the portfolios’ exposure to various market shocks, factor dynamics, hidden biases and other variables.

The PC continuously monitors our multi-strategy performance, evaluates relative risk/reward and addresses global macroeconomic trends.

Global Investment Strategies


Equities focuses on opportunities in public equity markets across the globe. The Equities team evaluates situations from multiple angles and multiple disciplines with investment professionals in North America, Europe and Asia. Sector-oriented fundamental analysts work in close collaboration with experts in corporate actions such as mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs and exchange offers.

Equities focuses on identifying investments with favorably skewed pay-off profiles in the form of long ideas, short ideas or relative value/arbitrage ideas, which are executed through the Global Equities and Merger Arbitrage investment strategies.

Global Equities 

  • Opportunistic investment approach that fuses research-driven fundamental views and process-oriented expertise in corporate actions/events
  • Focus on bottom-up, idiosyncratic situations with a bias toward those with defined catalysts, events or other elements of corporate change and complexity

Merger Arbitrage

  • Selective approach dedicated to investing in situations in which we maintain a differentiated view of the outcomes in merger-related situations
  • Focus on investments with favorably skewed payoff profiles, often with wide gross spreads — not “rate of return” arbitrage

Credit invests in complex situations across global corporate and structured credit markets, including liquidations and restructurings. Credit seeks to generate strong risk-adjusted returns by capturing value in mispriced investments across disrupted, dislocated and distressed situations in the Corporate Credit and Structured Credit investment strategies.

Corporate Credit

  • Event-driven strategy focused on complex distressed situations, restructurings and bankruptcies
  • Analysis across the capital structure, focusing on downside scenarios, valuation and risk management

Structured Credit

  • Active strategies across securitized products, including residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities, CLOs and CDOs
  • Utilize process-driven approach to unlock value in complex, often misunderstood structures
Convertible and Derivative Arbitrage

Convertible and Derivative Arbitrage focuses on opportunities in North America, Europe and Asia. With a broad geographic presence and experienced technical capabilities, Convertible and Derivative Arbitrage seeks to identify attractive investment opportunities for our investors. The Convertible and Derivative Arbitrage team’s investing acumen is supported by proprietary analytical tools developed and refined over the past two decades.

Convertible and Derivative Arbitrage

  • Identify and exploit situations where we believe an opportunity exists for convergence between market price and theoretical value
  • Capitalize on structural supply/demand mismatches in various markets, including commodities and volatility
Private Investments

Private Investments selectively and opportunistically pursues longer-dated and less liquid investments across asset classes, including credit, equity, real estate and energy.

Private Investments

  • Flexible capital mandate allows for participation in niche opportunities across sectors and regions, leveraging global presence and expertise to identify and source investments
