About us

Specialised Knowledge of Risk Arbitrage

We provide event driven research services to hedge fund managers and institutional investors that cover select definitive and pre-announced M&A deals, focusing on identifying and analysing the key upside and downside risks to a particular transaction. We primarily analyse $billion+ takeovers or mergers of publicly-traded European targets, but also look at deals globally to assess when there is a key European angle or aspect that can influence the deal outcome.

With over 17 years’ experience in risk arbitrage and investment banking, we specialise in providing research and advisory services on all facets of risk arbitrage, with particular expertise in:

  • Cross-Border M&A

  • Hostile Takeovers

  • Local Takeover Codes

  • Antitrust & Competition

  • Financial Valuation

  • Shareholder Vote Analysis

  • Impacts of Precedent Transactions

  • Risk Arbitrage Trading Strategies

Independent and High-Quality Research Services

Our research is unbiased and is based on facts. We are not influenced by corporate advisory mandates, positions on proprietary trading books or expected sales & trading commissions. With neither conflicts of interest nor pressure to push investment ideas, we are able to provide truly objective, value-added research and advice. We work with our clients to scrutinise deals and understand the key risks and considerations, and then step back to let them undertake any appropriate investment actions with confidence.

Through an annual subscription to our research services, clients receive insightful, high-quality and in-depth analysis in research reports that are typically between 30-60 pages, as well as deal commentary, risk arbitrage monthly updates, bespoke work, and access to all our financial models and our team. Research reports can also be purchased individually, outside of an annual subscription.
