Hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackman to launch a NYSE-listed fund for regular investors


  • SUMMARY

Bill Ackman, a renowned hedge fund billionaire, is launching a new closed end fund with a focus on investing in 12 to 24 large-cap, investment grade, and “durable growth” companies in North America.

This fund is unique in that it does not have a performance fee, which is commonly seen in traditional hedge funds.

Ackman is waiving the management fee for the first 12 months and will then charge a flat 2% fee.

This fund is expected to attract substantial investor interest due to Ackman’s brand name and broad retail following, potentially making it one of the largest listed closed-end funds.

Ackman’s hedge fund has achieved impressive returns in the past, holding only seven stocks at the end of 2023 and posting a 26.7% gain last year.
