O'Connor is the key strategic single manager hedge fund business within UBS’s Alternative & Quantitative division. The firm combines significant, actual experience in trading, risk management and alternative investments.
O'Connor is dedicated to absolute return investment management and manages in excess of USD 5.7 billion (as of 1 April 2013) in non-traditional strategies through its Global Long/Short Equities, Credit Long/Short, Merger Arbitrage and Convertible Securities programs. O'Connor has a global trading platform with offices located in Chicago, London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.
O’Connor’s trading and risk management experience dates back to 1977 when O’Connor was a private partnership specializing in derivatives and market-making. Over the next 23 years O’Connor established itself as a global leader in trading various markets and derivatives instruments as both a private partnership and within Swiss Bank Corp’s and subsequently UBS AG’s investment bank proprietary trading divisions. Over this time O’Connor has maintained its focus on relative value investing and state-of-the-art risk management capabilities.
As a result of its industry leading reputation with regards to its investment capabilities and risk management, O’Connor launched its first hedge fund vehicle for outside investors in June of 2000. The launch of this Multi-Strategy hedge fund vehicle marked the beginning of O’Connor investing capital for sophisticated institutional and ultra high net worth private investors. Since 2000 O’Connor has prided itself on its ability to continuously evolve with the ever changing global investment markets in order to provide attractive hedge fund vehicles for clients to invest in.
O'Connor's capabilities comprise a wide range of investment programs with attractive risk-adjusted "absolute" returns, which generally possess low correlation with most major asset classes and traditional investment benchmarks. O’Connor’s flagship capabilities are the Global Multi-Strategy Alpha Fund and the Global Fundamental Market Neutral Long/Short Equity Fund. Additionally, O’Connor offers many of its other hedge fund strategies to investors looking for more focused and concentrated offerings.
