Join the Museum of American Finance, the Fordham University Gabelli Center for Global Security Analysis and the CFA Society of New York for an evening with Kate Welling, the publisher of the financial journal Welling on Wall St., and Mario Gabelli, the chairman and CEO of Gamco Investors, Inc., on their new book, Merger Masters: Tales of Arbitrage.

In Merger Masters, Michael Price, John Paulson, Paul Singer and others offer practical perspectives on how their backgrounds in the risk-conscious world of merger arbitrage helped them make their biggest deals. They share their insights on the discipline that underlies their fortunes, whether they practice the “plain vanilla” strategy of announced deals, the aggressive strategy of activist investment or any strategy in between on the risk spectrum. The book also delves into the human side of risk arbitrage, exploring how top practitioners deal with the behavioral aspects of generating consistent profits from risk arbitrage. It includes perspectives from the other side of the mergers and acquisitions divide in the form of interviews with iconic CEOs. Told in lively, accessible prose, with bonus facts and figures for transaction junkies, Merger Masters is an incomparable set of stories with plenty of unfiltered lessons from the best managers of our time.

Talk followed by Q&A and reception. MoAF members FREE; General admission $25. Reservations required.

Please note: Doors open at 5:30pm. The first 250 attendees will receive a copy of the book.
