Pivoting to opportunity

Our Strategy

Through cross-pollination and dynamic teamwork, we employ multiple strategies to actively shift exposures and help optimize risk-reward.

Third Point has a multi-decade track record of engagement with mature, publicly-listed companies advocating for operational or portfolio change in order to drive long-term shareholder value.

We aim to identify companies early in their lifecycle, where we can take a board seat, advise on go-to-market strategy, and help founders navigate capital markets as they eventually approach a public listing.

We have invested in structured credit, beginning with a focus on RMBS/CMBS and later extending to almost all forms of loan securitization. Our structured credit team also collaborates closely with the venture capital and financial equities teams.

Throughout our history, we have swiftly deployed capital during market dislocations into all types of credit securities, including government bonds. Credit has represented a majority of AUM several times in our history. We may also choose to participate in distressed workouts or on creditor’s committees.

Most of our team is comprised of sector specialists focused on both longs and shorts in event driven and fundamental equities. An event-driven approach helps us identify catalysts in mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, and other special situations that will unlock value. We also have a long history of short-selling individual securities.
