Black Diamond was our first multi-strategy fund. The fund employs non-directional, relative value investment strategies that seek to identify, isolate and exploit mispricings generally among related securities within industry sectors. The fund has three core strategies - Equity Relative Value, Credit Relative Value, and Event-Driven - and places a greater emphasis on a directional equity strategy than Double Black Diamond, the firm's flagship multi-strategy fund. Multiple investment teams, organized by industry sector, employ deep fundamental analysis to develop investment theses. We allocate capital dynamically within and across strategies to position the fund advantageously during various market environments, using modest leverage to enhance an attractive risk-reward and low equity beta profile, and maintain broad diversification.
