The growth of activist investing in europe

Activist Investing in Europe 2015
May 19 - The Waldorf Hilton - London

 

Shareholder activist campaigns continue to increase in the U.S. markets, and not a week goes by without seeing a new campaign waged against a prominent corporation. As hedge fund activists continue to explore new jurisdictions and show strong interest in targeting European corporations, it is out of necessity that the management and boards of these companies have had to gain an understanding of the objectives, strategies and approaches of U.S. activist investors.


In recent years, sluggish growth in the European markets has offered opportunities for activist investors to target hundreds of underperforming companies. In 2014 Bwin.party, Vivendi, Nexans, SkyDeutschland, Interpump Group, and Indensit are just some of the companies who found themselves on the defense against activist campaigns.


Activist Investing in Europe taking place May 19 in London gives European company management an understanding of what may attract an activist to target their company, and what to expect if they become the object of an activist campaign.
