Hitchwood Capital Management, which was launched in July of 2014, is quickly making a name for itself as one of New York’s top hedge fund managers. With $1.7 billion in assets, Hitchwood Capital is the youngest fund to crack the top 15 of the Equity Emerging Manager Hedge Fund rankings.

Hitchwood Capital is also ranked on the Top Technology, Media and Telecom (TMT) List, claiming the #31 spot.

New York-based Hitchwood Capital was launched last year by James Crichton, who had previously co-founded Scout Capital with Adam Weiss in 1999. In January of 2014, Crichton and Weiss announced that they were shutting down Scout Capital because Weiss wanted to stop managing funds for external investors.
