HoldCo Asset Management and affiliates (“HoldCo”) were launched eight years ago with a broad mandate to invest in corporate credit, structured credit, and equity. Over the past 5 years, HoldCo has raised long-term investing vehicles approximating $1.5 billion. Because these vehicles are structured as private equity funds with 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. HoldCo pursues a value-based investing philosophy consistent with a fundamental bottoms-up approach to analyzing each investment. Its limited partners include endowments, foundations, hospitals, and family offices. HoldCo’s funds rarely employ leverage and do not require any third party approvals to fund purchases.
HoldCo was founded by Vik Ghei and Misha Zaitzeff in 2011. 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 four investment analysts that assist Vik and Misha in the evaluation and oversight of potential investment opportunities. In addition, HoldCo’s operations and compliance functions are overseen by a specialized team led by HoldCo’s seasoned chief financial officer.
