An activist investor will share his approach to activist investing. He  will discuss:
  • what they look for
  • what they avoid
  • what makes a good activist target
  • at what point do they decide to turn from working behind the scenes with a company to going more public with respect to an activist investment
  • how do they decide which levers to use
  • what lessons have they learned being an activist investor.
James Mitarotonda, Barington Capital Group
