Speaker: Richard Bateson (AHL, Man Group PLC)

Event driven, special situation and relative value trades in the corporate sector are important specialised hedge fund investment strategies. Arbitraging relationships across and within the capital structure of investment grade and high yield companies has historically provided low volatility returns. In this presentation Richard D. Bateson will describe his experiences in managing a corporate arbitrage hedge fund with Man Group. The practical aspects of trading across the capital structure including equity, bonds, credit default swaps and leveraged loans will be outlined and how trades are practically structured, financed and executed. Different trading strategies including merger arb, cap structure arb, curves and various basis trades will be described and their risks explored.
