Paul Singer Chats With David Rubenstein

Paul Singer of hedge fund Elliott Management sat down with Carlye Group co-founder David Rubenstein to chat at Bloomberg Invest New York.

They talk about how Singer founded Elliott, investing, and more.

Elliott manages $34 billion now and started in 1977 with $1.3 million.  Singer was a practicing lawyer at the time but started with friends and family money as he found investing much more enjoyable.

Convertible bond hedging was the first strategy Elliott used for around ten years. (Elliott, by the way, is Singer's middle name).  Over 40 years, Elliott has compounded at 13.5% net.

Embedded below is the video of Singer's chat with Rubenstein:
