P. Schoenfeld Asset Management
P. Schoenfeld Asset Management (PSAM) is a leading global alternative asset management firm with a focus on investing in catalyst-driven transactions to generate absolute returns.

PSAM utilizes a disciplined investment process based on fundamental research to analyze announced corporate events that are expected to alter the control, capital structure or corporate strategy of an organization. We believe these announced events can create mispricings of securities relative to their inherent or ultimate realizable value.

We employ three main investment strategies: Merger Arbitrage, Distressed/Stressed Credit Opportunities and Special Situations. We are agnostic as to where in the capital structure an investment is made and allocate to each strategy and geography opportunistically.

In addition to offering institutional quality investment research and risk management, we are committed to industry best practices through continued investment in operations, technology, risk management, compliance, client service and technology.
