Jonathan Spitzer

Jonathan Spitzer is the publisher and editor-in-chief of CTFN. Jonathan launched the publication in early 2014 to provide the highest quality news on mergers and related corporate actions. Today CTFN provides market moving insights for analysts, portfolio managers, and deal professionals in the merger arbitrage and event-driven space. Jonathan was a merger arbitrage research analyst for Arnhold and S. Bleichroeder Advisers from 1999 - 2005, and co-portfolio manager of the merger arbitrage funds at Arnhold and S. Bleichroeder (presently known as First Eagle Investment Management), from 2005 until his retirement from active fund management in 2013. He has an MBA from Columbia Business School (Beta Gamma Sigma) and a BA from Yale College in comparative literature (summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa). Jonathan believes that as competition authorities have proliferated globally and as enforcement trends have varied over time, quality reporting from knowledgable sources has become increasingly important. CTFN's investigative reporting is designed for knowledgeable industry and financial markets participants who appreciate detail and critical thinking from credible sources.
