NEW YORK and LONDON, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Edge Consulting Group www.edgecgroup.com was established in 2005 for the benefit of equity investors looking for a different angle within the Spinoff space.
Today The Edge (previously named The Spinoff Report®) has grown from a small London based boutique to relocating to the Greater New York area servicing over 200 clients giving advice on Spinoffs. Bespoke advice on forcing breakups for many of the world's biggest companies, special situation stock investments and more recently, the big move into credit.
The catalyst to launching The Edge was the lack of any quality research in the space and moreover the 'trust' element. As Jim Osman, CEO and founder said recently in an interview "I believe that in order to act on anything, you need to have a level of trust. Particularly in a sector which unfortunately breeds some unscrupulous people." [read the exclusive interview here]
It seems to have worked. Building the trust in their research has grown the company substantially and now their intelligence is guiding a significant number of the biggest hedge, activist and mutual funds in the world.
Where do The Edge go Now?
The Edge had a demand early last year from their clients and partners for credit investment opportunities. This led to the launch of the Edge Stressed Credit Report in January, 2016. Among notable successes have been long calls on Navistar (NAV), Scientific Games Corp (SGMS) and a short position on Joy Global (JOY). This had led to their Model Portfolio outperforming the major benchmark indices, rallying higher by 6% already this year. Benefiting their exclusive membership clients in a very tough market.
As Osman states, "We continue to exist for the benefit of our partners. We will build on their success and increase our presence adding value in these valuable asset classes."
