Today we released the second video in the series of presentations originated at the Center for Applied Innovation Town Hall Meeting on IP Investments & Markets, Presented by Ocean Tomo. In this video, Ocean Tomo Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer Michael Friedman provides a comprehensive overview of the panel and featured speaker presentation themes addressed during the two-day event.
Over the last seven years, Michael Friedman has observed that “there is IP alpha everywhere,” but further contends that it is “narrowly exploited within the investment community.” Michael provided an interesting backdrop for the audience relative to both Liquid and Illiquid Investment Strategies including special situations investing (activism, distressed and change of control situations), IP collateralized debt and IP rights enforcement, among others.
Each of panel presentation will be released in the coming weeks on the Center for Applied Innovation YouTube channel and will be highlighted on OceanTomoInsights blog.
