Elliott Investment Management L.P. is an American investment management firm. It is also one of the largest activist funds in the world.[4]

It is the management affiliate of American hedge funds Elliott Associates L.P. and Elliott International Limited. The Elliott Corporation was founded by Paul Singer, who is CEO of the management company, based in New York City. As of the first quarter of 2015, Elliott's portfolio is worth over $8 billion.[5][6]

By 2009 "more than one-third of Elliott's portfolio was concentrated in distressed securities, typically in the debt of bankrupt or near-bankrupt companies."[7][8][9][10][11]

In October 2020 Singer announced that his firm was relocating its headquarters to West Palm Beach, Florida.[12]


Singer created Elliott Associates in January 1977,[13] starting with $1.3 million from friends and family and choosing the Elliott brand as it is his middle name.[14] In its earliest years, the firm focused on convertible arbitrage. Since the 1987 stock market crash and early 1990s recession, however, the firm has transitioned into a multi-strategy hedge fund.[15][16] Elliott Associates manages $8.6 billion and is Elliott Management's primary domestic fund.[17]

The firm is currently closed to new investors. As of mid-2008, Elliott counted 175 employees in New York City, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong[16] and is one of the oldest hedge funds under continuous management.[18]

In a November 2014 investment letter, Elliott described optimism about U.S. growth as unwarranted. "Nobody can predict how long governments can get away with fake growth, fake money, fake jobs, fake financial stability, fake inflation numbers and fake income growth," Elliott wrote. "When confidence is lost, that loss can be severe, sudden and simultaneous across a number of markets and sectors."[19]

In 2015, Institutional Investor/Alpha magazine gave Elliott an A grade and the #9 ranking among hedge funds worldwide.[20]

Equity partners[edit]

Elliott has seven equity partners.[21] Paul Singer and Jonathan Pollock are co-chief investment officers; Gordon Singer, Paul Singer's son, manages Elliott's London office. Former senior portfolio manager Steven Kasoff, whose retirement was announced in April 2020, was named an equity partner in January 2015.[22][23] Steve Cohen, Dave Miller, Jesse Cohn and Zion Shohet are also listed as equity partners at the firm, as of November 2020.[21]

Early activities[edit]

Early in its history, Elliott focused on convertible arbitrage, refocusing primarily on distressed debt investing following the 1987 stock market crash and early 1990s recession. Elliott is known for restructuring such U.S. firms as TWA, MCI, WorldCom, and Enron[30] as well as overseas companies including Telecom Italia SpA and Elektrim.


In February 2020, Elliott Management, with about $2 billion in shares, nominated three directors to the board of Twitter Inc.[31] The Wall Street Journal then reported that Singer wants to replace Jack Dorsey, due to Dorsey's workload as CEO of both Twitter and Square, and his potential move to Africa.[32] In April 2021, Elliott's directors planned to step down from the board after Twitter's stock performance rose 95% in 2020.[33]

Elliott's February 2020 purchase of Twitter stock was at a per share price of about $36. Elliott exited Twitter in June 2022 shortly after Elon Musk made his tender offer,[34] when the share price was dynamic in the mid to high $45-$50 range, giving Elliott a gain over two years of approximately 33% on the investment.

Wella AG[edit]

In 2003, Elliott believed P&G was not offering a fair price to all preferred shareholders for the German hair products company Wella AG. Elliott joined other funds in opposing the deal, including Germany's second-largest fund manager, Deka Investments. After several years of legal and shareholder battles, P&G raised its offer for Wella AG for all preferred shareholders.[16] According to the Börsen-Zeitung, Elliott said its goal was to "protect the rights of minority shareholders."[35]


In April 2005, the Wisconsin-based retail chain Shopko announced that it had agreed to be acquired for approximately $1 billion by a private equity firm at a price of $24 per share.[36] This and a subsequent offer at $25 were rejected, according to the Milwaukee Business Journal, "after several dissident shareholders threatened to vote down the transaction, claiming the bid was too low." Elliott joined other hedge funds in opposing the sale because it felt the price was too low and because it had concerns about conflicts of interest on the board.[37][38] Elliott eventually participated in purchasing ShopKo at $29 per share.[39]


The human resource consulting company Adecco announced in January 2006 it had secured a 35 percent stake in DIS AG, at a price of €54.5 per share, making an offer at that price for all shares.[40] The company also announced that the DIS CEO and CFO had signed lucrative management agreements that eventually would make them CEO and CFO, respectively, of Adecco.[41] Adecco attempted to de-list DIS but was blocked in court by a number of hedge funds, including Elliott. The funds also raised concerns about conflict of interest by the CEO and CFO. Eventually Adecco offered €113 per share, which was accepted.[40]


In March 2010, Elliott bid $5.75 per share for software company Novell. Although Novell rejected the offer, Elliott "welcomed" the decision to sell the company.[42]


In December 2011, it was reported that Elliott was suing the Vietnamese shipbuilding firm Vinashin in a British court. The company had defaulted a year earlier on a $600 million loan backed by the Vietnamese government, then offered to pay bondholders 35 cents on the dollar. Elliott sued for the full amount.[43] In April 2012 Elliott dropped the case.[44]


It was reported in December 2012 that Elliott, which already had an 8% stake in Compuware, had offered to buy the company for $11 a share in cash.[45]

Hess Corporation[edit]

In late 2012, Elliott criticized the oil company Hess for its use of capital and for being "distracted" from oil exploration and production by other activities. In January 2013, Elliott called on Hess to sell certain assets and asked Hess investors to vote for five new directors as part of an effort to reconfigure the oil firm and thus boost its share price.[46] "Buried within Hess Corp. is one of the premier U.S. resource play-focused companies," Elliott wrote.[47]

In March, Hess announced that it was acting on some of Elliott's suggestions, but Elliott said that Hess's changes fell far short of what was needed.[48] In April, it was reported that Hess would close its London office on Elliott's advice.[49] Hess has been a "top pick" for Elliott since 2013.[50] As of the fourth quarter of 2014, Elliott owned 17.8 million shares of Hess, worth $1.3 billion, making it Elliott's largest holding.[6]

Sanko Steamship[edit]

In late 2013 Elliot took control of the bankrupt Japanese shipowner Sanko and proceeded to close the majority of the overseas offices of that Company. Elliot eventually asset stripped the company's overseas properties and any equity left in the Companies vessels.[51] On 1 April 2012 Sanko had either managed or owned a fleet of 185 ships, which included 46 tankers and 27 dry bulk carriers.[52] By early 2019 this had been reduced to just 5 bulk carriers.[53] In March 2024 it was announced[54] that Sanko would sell their last vessel and exit shipowning after 90 years of existence.

Interpublic Group[edit]

In summer 2014, Elliott disclosed a 6.7% stake in Interpublic Group of Companies, an ad agency holding company, and "a person briefed on the matter said Elliott planned to call on the company to sell itself to one of its competitors".[55]

Solar projects in UK[edit]

In February 2015, the Telegraph reported that Elliot Management's UK arm, Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited, had put money into half a dozen unnamed solar-power projects in that country, and that it had "hedged its bets by taking out short positions in five other renewable energy funds listed on the London stock market."[58]


In September 2015, Elliott purchased a 1,940,642-share stake in Comcast, a Philadelphia-based mass media company, for an average price of $58.68 a share. This transaction had a 1.65% impact on Elliott's portfolio.[59][60]

CDK Global LLC[edit]

Elliott acquired a 4% stake in CDK Global in May 2015.[61] As of September 2016, it held a 5.4% stake in the company and is the third-largest shareholder.[62]

On 8 June 2016, Elliott sent a letter to CDK Board of Directors advising that "CDK adopt the steps in the Value-Maximizing Plan without delay" due to share-holder support of the plan in the 4 May letter.[64]

Telecom Italia[edit]

In May 2018, Elliott Management won a battle for control of Telecom Italia, controlling two-thirds of Telecom Italia's board seats.[65]


In the summer of 2015, Elliott, then a major investor in Samsung's construction division, opposed efforts by acting Samsung head Jay Lee who sought to have one part of the firm purchase the construction unit for $8 billion. Despite Elliott's opposition, the merger went through and Elliott sold its shares. Two years later, Lee was convicted of bribery and imprisoned after it was shown he had bribed a friend of South Korea's president to secure the merger.[66]


In October 2015, Elliott disclosed an 11.1 percent stake in Cabela's, an outdoor recreation and clothing retailer, reporting that it is seeking to engage the company's board to discuss strategies and a potential sale of the company.[67][68]

Elliot Management, in particular a Paul Singer expose on Tucker Carlson, was criticized for their handling of Cabela's headquarters following the acquisition and sale to Bass Pro Shops, due to the massive layoffs in the town of Sidney, Nebraska.[69]


In July 2016, Elliott persuaded the PulteGroup, a home builder in which it owns 4.7%, to add three new board members, cut investments in new land, and buy back shares.[70]

Time Equities[edit]

Since 2010, Elliott Management has expanded into investing in distressed real estate. It has been active in Japanese and German real estate and in 2015 viewed Spain and Italy as offering attractive investment opportunities.[22] According to The New York Times, it has "teams of analysts and portfolio managers in London, Hong Kong and Tokyo and investments worth more $2 billion." In the U.S., it "has focused on filling in the gap where banks have had to rein in their lending by participating in direct financing with developers."[88]

The project would be carried out by GFI Capital Resources, a New York real estate company.[88]

Sovereign debt[edit]

A portion of Elliott's distressed securities trading has been in sovereign debt.[89]

After Argentina defaulted on its sovereign debt in 2002, Elliott, which owned Argentinian bonds with a nominal face value of $630 million now worth $2.3 billion, refused to accept Argentina's offer of less than 30 cents on the dollar. Elliott won judgments against Argentina in U.S. and U.K. courts but did not collect payment. In October 2012, an Elliott subsidiary, NML Capital, arranged for the seizure in Ghana of the ARA Libertad, an Argentinian naval vessel, which it intended to confiscate in accordance with court judgments awarding it over $1.6 billion in Argentinian assets.[92] A November 2012 New York trial, which ended in a ruling for NML and against Argentina; legal experts called it the "sovereign debt trial of the century." In a letter published in the Financial Times, legal experts Andreas F. Lowenfeld and Peter S. Smedresman defended NML's position.[93]

Elliott exposed corruption in the Republic of the Congo in its efforts to enforce judgments totaling more than $100 million in defaulted bank debt.[94][95] In 2008, Elliott bought $32.6 million in loan debt incurred by Congo. In 2002 and 2003, a British court awarded Elliott more than $100 million for these debts. During the case, US President George W Bush used a constitutional clause preventing seizure of Congolese assets in the United States by the hedge fund.[96] Brice Mackosso, a campaigner for greater transparency and against corruption in the Congo Republic's government, stated that if it were not for funds like Elliott, "we would not know any facts about the way our country's wealth is being taken away."[89] After Elliott's investigations produced evidence of corruption, the government settled for an estimated $90 million on debt for which Elliott paid less than $20 million.[14]


Elliott acquired a position in Alexion Pharmaceuticals in 2017. In May 2020 Elliott Management again pushed for Alexion to sell itself, months after the drugmaker had rejected the hedge fund's earlier demand. Elliott argues that Alexion management's actions, including a recent move to acquire Portola Pharmaceuticals for about $1.4 billion, are leading in the "wrong direction." In December, Alexion's board unanimously rejected a recommendation by Elliott to immediately launch a proactive sale.[97]
