Event-driven Investing in Asia
Matthew Cooper and Scott Collison
Rubicon Asset Management
October 2006

The objective of an event-driven investment strategy is to profit from investing in securities that are subject to corporate events. Significant corporate events can cause inefficiencies in the pricing of securities issued by companies undergoing such events (particularly in respect of the probability and timing of the event), which event-driven funds then seek to exploit. Such corporate events include mergers and acquisitions (M&A), capital-management initiatives, directors’ trades, earnings surprises and corporate distress.

Event-driven investing in Asia offers not only a high frequency of corporate events, but also a high incidence of mispricing across the various sub-strategies. This provides an ideal investment environment with the opportunity for attractive and sustainable risk-adjusted returns. Unlocking these returns, however, requires a combination of deep experience with respect to both event-driven investment strategies and knowledge of the various Asian investment markets.
