Tyrus Capital launched its flagship fund, the Tyrus Capital Event Fund, in October 2009, barely a year after the collapse of Lehman Brothers caused a global financial crisis. Against this backdrop it seemed a daunting task to be starting a new fund, but Tyrus Capital surprised many observers by catapulting assets to $1.5 billion in just three months. This success was partly ascribed to receding risk aversion as markets were regaining composure, and investors too were emboldened enough to resume allocations – particularly to a fund with a cohesive team that had worked together for many years.
