In order to achieve this, the fund will invest principally in securities subject to or potentially subject to meaningful corporate activity where York UCITS Holdings, LLC ("York" or the "Investment Manager") believes the market price does not adequately reflect the effect that such activity will have on the securities valuation. The Fund focuses primarily on four area of investment opportunities: event equities, value equities, risk arbitrage and credit.
