Company Description

Water Island Capital specializes in event-driven investing strategies, including strategies focused on merger arbitrage, equity special situations, and credit opportunities. These strategies are available to prospective institutional and retail clients through public mutual funds, institutional separate accounts and private funds. Water Island may use derivatives, such as options, as well as short selling or purchase of related securities and those of peer companies, to isolate the outcome of the investment in a particular \"event\" from the broader directional moves of the securities markets. The Arbitrage Funds currently offer four series: The Arbitrage Fund, The Arbitrage Event-Driven Fund, The Arbitrage Tactical Equity Fund and The Arbitrage Credit Opportunities Fund.
