Investment Approach

Credit Suisse Asset Management announced on September 14, 2010 its agreement to acquire a passive, non-controlling minority interest in York Capital Management (“York”). The transaction will enable us to offer our clients the best of both businesses – combining York’s top class independent investment management and products with the global reach of Credit Suisse.

York was founded in 1991 with a simple goal: to provide consistent, superior risk-adjusted investment returns relatively independent of the overall market. In the years since, the firm has pursued this goal through a combination of focused research and investment selection, and disciplined risk management.

York specializes in merger and acquisition transactions, distressed and restructuring opportunities and special situations equity investing in a variety of events including corporate spin-offs and split-ups, shareholder agitation and proxy contests, balance sheet arbitrages and consolidation opportunities. York’s approach to event-driven investing is opportunistic, building portfolios bottom-up, trade-by-trade in response to market conditions. With offices located in New York, Washington, DC, London and Hong Kong, York manages assets on behalf of institutions, endowments, foundations, funds of funds, and wealthy individuals and their families.
