Merger Arbitrage Limited is a successful Event Driven & Special Situations Investment fund. Along with the website Merger Arbitrage Limited the fund specializes in Merger Arbitrage (Risk Arbitrage). The investment process focusses on the following key elements i) Evaluation of relative risk/return characteristics ii) Time frame analysis iii) Entry/exit points This focus has resulted in multiple variants of the traditional merger arbitrage strategy each having their own unique characteristics. In concert, these strategies produce an attractive source of alternative beta with less risk than traditional plain vanilla merger arbitrage thus producing an attractive sharp ratio consistently above 2. The key areas listed above have been intensely researched and build extensively upon existing academic literature resulting in a series of proprietary algorithms. The primary geographic area of operation is (but not restricted to) the US and encompasses all deal types. MAL also designs, continuously develops and execute various other automated quantitative strategies. These strategies primarily involve the use of (but not limited to) equities and equity options which are synchronised to the risk appetites of individual clients. Strategies are coded and automated in R and Visual Studio, with some arbitrage and special situation plays requiring additional manual input to optimise execution and performance.
