HoldCo Asset Management and its affiliates (“HoldCo”) manage private investment funds using a value-based philosophy with a fundamental bottoms-up approach to analyzing each investment. HoldCo was founded by Vik Ghei and Misha Zaitzeff in 2011.
In recent years, HoldCo has raised over $1.5 billion in capital commitments for funds with long-term investment horizons. HoldCo’s funds have broad mandates to invest in public and private markets across corporate credit, structured credit, real estate, and equity securities. Because these funds have multi-year time horizons, HoldCo is able to remain patient and opportunistic in its deployment of capital. In addition, the stability of HoldCo’s capital base allows for significant flexibility to invest in illiquid instruments. The limited partners in HoldCo’s funds include endowments, foundations, hospitals and family offices. HoldCo’s funds rarely employ leverage.
Prior to founding HoldCo, Vik and Misha served as senior investment professionals at certain large multi-strategy hedge funds and worked together as an investing team. HoldCo currently employs a small team of investment analysts who assist Vik and Misha in the evaluation and oversight of potential investment opportunities. In addition, HoldCo’s operations and compliance functions are overseen by HoldCo’s Chief Financial Officer as well as its General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer.
