Short selling the European mid-market – a practitioner’s approach


Short selling as an investment strategy has a mixed reputation. Not only is it questioned from a moral perspective, it is also deemed very risky due to its unlimited loss potential. Felix Eisel is a founding partner at Frankfurt-based long / short manager Conduction Capital. He will provide an overview of recurring patterns that open short selling opportunities, guide through practical case studies and shed light on why sometimes short selling can protect lenders from investing more money into an already burning house.
