The opportunity

This niche/tactical strategy provides access to investments in carefully selected, strictly defined, and often hard-to-access, niche and/or tactical themes. There is particular focus on opportunities arising from market dislocations, regulatory shifts, capital imbalances and/or policy changes where an attractive risk reward has been created. Investments are sourced from across Prisma’s global platform (utilising internal and external channels).
