The asset manager Bantleon has created a new mutual fund for institutional investors called Bantleon Event Driven Equities that seeks to generate largely market-independent, equity-like returns from company-specific events through a structured investment approach. Its strategy exploits inefficiencies in the pricing of listed companies’ shares using a variety of event-driven return components. The return-focused core component of merger arbitrage is combined with other opportunistic event-driven criteria. The various components are strategically weighted in line with Bantleon’s macroeconomic outlook, with promising situations favoured over lower-risk ones in »risk on« phases and the reverse applying in »risk off« phases. Bantleon has already implemented this strategy successfully in individual portfolios.
