Highbridge Capital Management, LLC is a US$9.13 billion multi-strategy alternative investment management firm founded by Glenn Dubin and Henry Swieca in 1992.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The firm was founded in 1992, by childhood friends Glenn Dubin and Henry Swieca. The company started with $35 million in capital and is named after the 19th-century aqueduct that connects Washington Heights and the Bronx. In 2004, J.P. Morgan Asset Management purchased 55% ownership of the firm, and then substantially all the remaining shares in 2009.[1][2]

The company maintains offices in New York, London, and Hong Kong. The firm operates as a subsidiary of J.P. Morgan Asset Management.[3]

In October 2015, it was reported that JPMorgan Chase was nearing a deal to sell the firm's private equity business.[4]
