YORK CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

Multi-Strategy

Three sub-strategies.
One established solution.
All market cycles.

Our flagship Multi-Strategy product was launched in 1991, followed by dedicated European and Asian offerings in 2004 and 2006, respectively, with a mission to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns in all environments and with lower volatility than the market. That legacy continues today.

With a focus on risk-adjusted outcomes in a rapidly evolving marketplace, York’s Multi-Strategy platform is designed to achieve results via three characteristics:

Dependable

Target structurally lower and more stable beta, and limit macro and factor exposures

BALANCED

Target diversification in terms of sub-strategies, type of events, geographies and sectors

Differentiated

Target significantly reduced exposure to crowded trades and increased international exposure to take advantage of York’s global capabilities

*As of December 1, 2019.

professionals globally

York’s suite of Multi-Strategy products brings
together our global investment capabilities
and network to seek to capture alpha across three

value-creating events:

on uncertainties
related to M&A deal
completion

Special
Situations

Anticipating or reacting to
major corporate
changes and seeking
to take advantage
of the inefficiencies they create

Opportunistic Credit

Seeking to capture idiosyncratic
value across stressed
credits, bankruptcies,
liquidations and
restructurings

Benefit from
collaboration across
borders.

Each of our strategies seeks to benefit from synergies across our global team, which has an intimate grasp of cultural and jurisdictional dynamics.

 

Our Multi-Strategy is distinguished by:

  • Longevity and established
    presence in key markets

    Seeking to solidify trust and a reputation as a quality shareholder across regions.

  • Thoughtful, constructive
    engagement with businesses

    Seeking to ensure companies recognize the value of working with York across the world.

  • Deep local-market understanding
    with global reach

    Seeking to navigate the legal/political complexities driving cross-border opportunities.

We look for windows of inefficiency. These
windows can be as narrow as two hours
or as wide as two years, and often involve the
timely analysis of vast sets of data and catalysts.
