I mainly trade mean-reversion strategies, specifically in the deep value space, but my fund is unconstrained and explores the entire asset class universe, looking for unexplored and underpriced opportunities across all investible sectors.
I am an event-based investor focusing on opportunities with hard or predictable catalysts - particularly companies undergoing demergers or mergers, or otherwise able to manufacture high-probability growth due to some quirk of corporate structure, capital structure, accretive share issuance, growth via acquisition pipeline, competitive advantage/reinvestment, or other high-probability mechanism.
I am always on the look-out - especially in context of the opportunities mentioned above - for supply and demand imbalances: forced or uneconomic sellers, predicable (exploitable) behavioral trends, or unusual securities that can't be held by many industry players. Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.
