Founded in 1977
Elliott Management Corporation is one of the oldest fund managers of its kind under continuous management.
As of January 1, 2018, Elliott manages more than $34 billion in assets under management. The firm employs a staff of 440 people, including 160 investment professionals, in its New York headquarters and affiliated offices elsewhere in the United States, London, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.
The firm culture emphasizes thoroughness, hard work, creativity, and tenacity. Elliott trades in securities across the capital structure and often will take a leading role in event-driven situations to create value or manage risk.
There are a number of elements of the firm’s investment and risk-management activities that Elliott believes are essential to its goal of generating a consistent return to its investors. These elements include an opportunistic trading approach, the creation – not just the identification – of value, effective liquidity management, and managing operational and counterparty risk. The firm employs a value-added global investment approach.
