Pairtrade Finder is a service of Event Driven Investor Ltd. which was formed as the result of a decade long collaboration between two investment professionals, Geoffrey Hossie and Paul Cuatrecasas.  Both Paul and Geoff share an intense passion for public markets investing and trading and have together gathered more than 65 years of combined experience in managing investments.

Their initial collaboration began in 2003 when Geoff and Paul pooled their ideas and experience in mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring and fundamental analysis and launched an FSA-authorized and regulated hedge fund dedicated to investing and trading U.S. and European corporate special situations, mainly through pair-trading strategies to maintain market neutrality. With high proportions of their personal net worth committed to the fund, they created an investment management company, Claridge Capital Management LLP, and the Claridge Special Situations Fund (“CSSF”), which invested successfully in these markets CLICK HERE.

Due to other opportunities presented to its principals at the time, Claridge Capital Management discontinued its investing activities at the end of 2005. Both principals remained dedicated to public and private market investing and trading, as well as their respective mergers and acquisitions advisory and private equity investment activities.

In late 2015, Paul and Geoff received a message from Jared Mann, who founded Pairtrade Finder back in 2008, that the business was for sale.  A quick review of the business by both Paul and Geoff made them experience the beauty and simplicity of the Pairtrade Finder platform for easily finding high potential long/short trading opportunities.  A quick negotiation followed in which Event Driven Investor Ltd. purchased all of the assets of the Pairtrade Finder™ business from Jared in early 2016.  Jared kindly agreed to stay on for two years with a stake in the business in order to ensure an orderly and seamless transition of the business to the new owner.

Today, Geoff, Paul, Jared and the Pairtrade Finder team strive to deliver to their users the simplest and most powerful tool for initiating traders into the world of pair trading and supporting these traders to remain consistently profitable.  For further details of our software, which has been downloaded more than 6,000 times, click HERE.
