Specialty

RP SPAC

Downside Protection with Upside Optionality

This strategy invests in a diversified portfolio of securities issued by North American Special Purpose Acquisition Corporations (“SPACs”). There is a strong element of downside protection (for investors) as the strategy invests early in the life cycle of these transactions, when the investments are backed by cash held in-trust. The strategy also has upside optionality when announced transactions are well-received by the market. The strategy’s objective is to deliver strong risk-adjusted return stream, uncorrelated to equity and fixed income markets.
