The approach seeks to take advantage of mis-pricings in situations involving various types of corporate actions, including mergers, spin-offs, management changes and recapitalisations.
Founded in 1994, Och-Ziff is a USD44.4 billion institutional alternative asset manager who has invested in equities since its inception 21 years ago, and has extensive expertise in fundamental investing, event- driven situations and merger arbitrage. The firm has a team of 23 US equity investment professionals.
