AQR Corporate Arbitrage: A Multifaceted                            Approach to Arbitrage Investing

Corporate Arbitrage strategies seek to profit from corporate events, such as equity and debt issuances, mergers & acquisitions and bankruptcies. Because these strategies are tied to finance raising or control events of specific companies, they can provide a source of returns that is independent and diversifying from traditional equity and bond investments.

AQR’s Sustainable Corporate Arbitrage Strategy (‘the Strategy’) integrates three types of arbitrage strategies: Merger Arbitrage, Convertible Arbitrage, and Event-driven Investments.  Each strategy is a diversifying addition to a traditional portfolio, and dynamic exposure to a combination of these strategies provides the opportunity to benefit from different types of corporate events.  The Strategy employs our sustainable investment process, which features a positive tilt toward deals with more attractive ESG characteristics along with norms-based and dynamic screening.

Arbitrage opportunities can be created by financial events across the corporate lifecycle
