STRATEGY: CREATIVE & DYNAMIC

Antara has a tried and tested strategy that extends beyond the traditional approach to credit and equity investing by being active at two levels: position-level trade structuring and portfolio-level trading.

Generate new ideas internally

Utilize proprietary screens, applying fundamentally intensive rigor to research

Create opportunities

Influence the trajectory of outcomes during an investment-specific process

Contrast with the consensus

Evaluate the entire capital structure to determine most compelling way to construct a trade

Remain nimble

Adjust asset allocation fluidly as the current environment shifts to a distressed environment and back

Utilize single-name credit shorts and hedging

Seek alpha shorts and utilize trade structuring and hedging to mitigate risk

Balance active trading with stringent risk management

Seek to preserve capital when entering a distressed cycle, thereby securing a position of strength through a distressed environment
