SSI Unlevered Hedged Convertible FAQ

What is an Unlevered Hedged Convertible Arbitrage allocation?

An Unlevered Hedged Convertible allocation is a conservative version of Convertible Arbitrage. The investment objective of this strategy is to provide enhanced income and a diversifying return, while still significantly reducing portfolio volatility. The strategy delivers high interest income available on convertible securities, while hedging the equity risk by taking a short position in the same company’s underlying common stock. The opportunity set also includes gains through inefficiencies that exist in the marketplace and an increase in volatility in the market activity.
