|The Top Emerging Hedge Fund Manager list has undergone its annual refresh and the new list now includes emerging managers that oversee $60.5 billion in U.S. equity assets. Sean Cullinan’s PointState Capital reclaimed the top spot on The Top Emerging Manager List, after having surrendered it to Senator Investment Group during the previous quarter. |
PointState Capital is a global macro focused hedge fund manager that was founded in 2010 by CEO Cullinan and six of his former portfolio manager colleagues from Stanley Druckenmiller’s Duquesne Capital Management. The firm has been a regular on HedgeTracker’s Top Emerging Manager list since its inception.
Long/short equity focused Soroban Capital Partners reported equity assets of $5.8 billion at the end of the quarter, which was enough for it to claim the number two spot on the list. Soroban Capital, which is led by Eric Mandelblatt, Gaurav Kapadia and Scott Friedman, launched its flagship hedge fund in 2010. Before founding the NYC-based firm, all three founders worked together at TPG-Axon Capital.
The third largest hedge fund on the list, Corvex Management, reported equity assets of more than $4 billion. Founded by Carl Icahn protégé Keith Meister in 2010, Corvex is an event-driven and opportunistic investor that trades across the capital structure. The firm particularly focuses on equity investments, special situations and distressed securities largely in North America.
