Bankruptcy, liquidations and spin-offs may not be top-of-mind when you think of investment opportunities, but these corporate events can make a sizable impact on stock prices. That means potential opportunities for savvy investors.

For the 13th annual TCU Investment Strategies Conference, the LKCM Center for Financial Studies and the TCU Endowment Office bring you experts on event-driven strategies. Come hear how you can capitalize on unique investment opportunities you may not have considered.  

Keynote speakers are leaders in event-driven strategies: Jamie Dinan, CEO and founder of York Capital, and Howard Marks, founder and co-chairman of Oaktree Capital.

A panel of event-driven pioneers will include Clint Carlson, founder and president of Carlson Capital, Scott Ostfeld, partner with JANA, Rajiv Patel, managing member of credit for Farallon Capital Management.

Barrett Karr, principal of government affairs for Carlyle, will discuss political events that may lead to investment opportunities.

A discussion on how to capitalize on events beyond the U.S. will be led by a panel including Teresa Barger, co-founder and senior managing director for Cartica, Patrick Burke, managing partner and CIO of Pinyon Asset Management, and Robert Koenigsberger, founder, CIO and managing partner for Gramercy.
