YORK CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

Why York?

York is a global alternative investment firm focused on capturing idiosyncratic alpha across the capital structure, catalyzed by event-driven change. For almost three decades, we’ve sought to identify relative value and inefficiencies in global markets to our clients’ benefit.

We embrace change and complexity to seek to unlock value through an all-season approach that we execute with agility and discipline. Our diversified platform of solutions is designed to capture new opportunities as they arise.
