Elliott means action: Hedge fund firm Elliott Management takes an activist approach to investing, frequently amassing significant but minority stakes in distressed or underperforming companies and attempting to foment change. The company manages hedge funds Elliott Associates and Elliott International, which together manage some $15 billion of capital for large institutional investors and wealthy individuals. Elliott Associates invests in corporate, real estate, and sovereign debt (most famously with its 1995 $20 million investment in Peru), with investments in North America, Asia, and Europe. Founded by Paul Singer in 1977, Elliott Associates is one of the oldest hedge funds under continuous management.
