Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Do we have a deal? A pulse check on M&A activity

After hitting a record high in 1Q 2018, merger activity across the world continues on a frenzied pace, putting 2018 in a position to be a strong year for deal making. Wide spread levels driven by market volatility often creates greater investment opportunities for active managers in this space. As a result, the merger arbitrage strategy has become a greater focus for investors today.

On September 5, please join host John Krieg, Head of Institutional Client Coverage, Americas, and presenter Jay Raffaldini, Regional Head Americas, Hedge Fund Product Specialists for a live webinar where they will discuss:

• The current merger arbitrage environment
• Insights on the opportunities and risks in merger arbitrage investing
• How we construct our portfolio, and incorporate current trends
