Sightline Conversations: HGC Offers Insight into the SPAC Landscape


For this manager conversation, Sightline Wealth Management’s Warren Gerow speaks with HGC Investment Management CEO and CIO Sean Kallir and President Brett Lindros, who have experience through their fund in providing risk-adjusted returns by investing in Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs). During their discussion, Kallir and Lindros provide insight into the natural evolution of the SPAC environment and how they believe the space can still help preserve wealth in times of equity market volatility.

Specifically, Gerow, Kallir and Lindros discuss:

  • How recent regulation changes may impact the SPAC space
  • Differences in the SPAC market in 2022 versus previous years
  • Why HGC remains optimistic about the future for SPACs
  • How the fund specifically participates in the SPAC market
  • Ways the rate increase has impacted the prices of SPACs
  • Which SPAC sponsors are currently looking for companies to bring public
  • How the fund has been able to protect investor capital in times of volatility
  • An overview of HGC’s risk arbitrage strategy and their current allocation
