Since then, Richard Perry's Perry Capital has had a record of beat the market, underperforming it only once, in 2008. Richard Perry has accomplished this by taking on very little risk. Taking an event-based approach to his investments, Richard Perry looks for companies involved in mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcy, spinoffs or another type of restructuring. From there, he picks companies that are willing to work with him to make changes that unlock value. He also likes to talk to the CEOs of the companies to try to gather insights nobody else has. Perry then combines tis information with information gleamed about the company, its industry, its market, its competitors and its suppliers. If the company hasn't considered restructuring, Richard Perry and his team may suggest it, even be investing in the stock. In other words, Richard Perry is an activist investor but, unlike many other hedge fund activists, he chooses to avoid uncooperative companies altogether.
