Global convertible bond arbitrage

The fund was co-founded by David Harris and Howard Needle. The domestic and offshore funds exploit the systemic inefficiencies of the global convertible markets. The fund's strategy is opportunistic within the asset class, employing a combination of volatility trading, credit trading and structural arbitrage. Harris formerly managed a $2 billion proprietary convertibles business at Bankers Trust and Bank America Securities. Needle managed a $300 million convertible arbitrage portfolio at Greenwich Capital Markets.
