Leveraging an advanced, multi-asset electronic trading suite, Vertical Group’s agency-only trading desk can help clients identify and capitalize on event-driven trading opportunities. We seek to assist our clients in assessing and capitalizing on the mispricing of securities triggered by anticipated major corporate events and catalysts that arise as a result of corporate restructurings, recapitalizations, mergers and acquisitions, relative value disparities/stub trades, finance trades (synthetic stock loan) and index revisions. Our professionals’ extensive expertise in evaluating the firms undergoing transformation allows them to identify market inefficiencies and arbitrage opportunities. Vertical Group’s professionals offer full coverage on US and international M&A opportunities, providing guidance on expected closing timelines, potential pitfalls, risk/ reward assessment and trading scenarios. Clients’ risk arb trading is supported by a suite of electronic and hands-on equity and options trading tools.
