Christopher Gate, founding partner and chief investment officer, Oceanwood Capital Management

Christopher Gate takes a holistic approach to event driven investing. “Some investors completely separate out event driven as a separate, totally different strategy from, say, long/short or various different forms of credit strategies. I don’t think that’s entirely correct," he says. "There can be quite a considerable overlap between event driven trading and/or investment or distress or long/short or credit investment. It depends on what point in the cycle you are at.”
