Gabelli Funds has been the latest manager to announce it will be speaking at Investment Europe's Iberian Summit Barcelona 2019, set to take placeon the 30 and 31 of May at the Sofia Hotel in the Spanish city.
Gabelli Funds is a subsidiary of GAMCO Investors, which was founded in 1976 by Mario Gabelli.
GAMCO Investors, through its subsidiaries, manages assets of private advisory accounts (GAMCO), mutual funds and closed-end funds (Gabelli Funds) and is known for its Private Market Value with a Catalyst style of investment.
Anthony Lombardi, Gabelli Funds' research analyst working for the firm's merger arbitrage investment team, will be addressing merger investing. His research focuses on the analysis of complex M&A transactions and special situations. He has extensive experience across alternative investments, having worked across various business units prior to joining the merger team.
Gabelli has been managing dedicated merger arbitrage portfolios since 1985, as an extension of its Private Market Value with a Catalyst approach to value investing. The firm's objectives are to compound and preserve wealth over time, while remaining non-correlated to the broad equity and fixed income markets. "We work to achieve this by investing globally across the spectrum of announced merger transactions.
"Our portfolios are a highly liquid, non-market correlated, proven and consistent alternative to traditional equity and fixed income securities. We look for transactions with high strategic and synergistic rationale in industries we know well leveraging fundamental research of over forty Gabelli industry analysts," the firm explains.
WisdomTree, Artisan Partners, Eurizon Capital SGR, Mirabaud Asset Management, Polar Capital, Gesiuris Asset Management, State Street Global Advisors, and BMO are the asset management groups presenting at the summit apart from Gabelli Funds.
Around 40 fund selectors from Spain, Portugal and Andorra will be attending the event to hear on a wide range of topics and trends that are currently relevant for the industry.
