ASX Event Strategy
The Event strategy targets a reasonably low return (~6% per annum) but with very low risk. All-cash takeover offers are the ‘bread and butter’ of the strategy and can often provide a healthy annualised return with a small chance of failure. Other possible investments include share buybacks where franking credits provide the profit opportunity and different special situations where there may be an arbitrage profit.
