Managing AUM less then 100M
Chaplin Capital's investment strategy is event-driven and value-oriented, specializing in the identification and analysis of securities likely to experience a change in value resulting from market catalysts. The firm's investment activities may be classified under three strategies:
• Merger arbitrage – mergers, acquisitions, buyouts, hostile takeovers
• Special situations – restructurings, spin-offs, litigation, short sales
• Undervalued securities with a catalyst – management change, shareholder activism, industry consolidation
Chaplin Capital, LLC focuses on microcap to large-cap companies in developed countries, excluding Asia. The firm is highly selective and opportunistic with its investments, which can minimize market risk and create a lower correlation with overall markets. Our approach requires deep fundamental research and analysis. The firm has achieved its results with little to no leverage and a disciplined approach to risk management. Options are often deployed to minimize beta and maximize alpha.
