Bill Ackman is the founder of hedge fund for Persian Square Capital Management LP, as well as CEO, and has a net worth of $2 billion. Bill Ackman has accumulated his net worth through the many business investments in the Target Corporation, Borders Group and more. He was born in New York, U.S.
William A. Ackman or commonly known as Bill Ackman (born 11 May 1966, New York) is the major investor, founder and CEO of hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management LP. At one point in December 2007 his funds owned a 10% stake in Target Corporation, valued at $4.2 billion through the purchase of stock and derivatives. His funds now own a 7.8% stake. In December 2010, his funds held a 38% stake in Borders Group and on 6 December 2010, Ackman indicated that he would finance a buyout of Barnes & Noble for US$900M.
Ackman was raised in Chappaqua, NY. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1988, and an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1992.
In 1992, Ackman co-founded Gotham Partners with another Harvard graduate. By 1998, the firm had more than $500M in assets. In 2003, the New York Attorney General investigated whether the firm had engaged in illegal practices for publishing its own research reports on stocks in which it has taken either a long or short position. The litigation concluded that the firm had committed no wrongdoing. Gotham Partners mainly invested in non-publicly traded companies and real estate concerns.
Ackman's Pershing Square Capital Management has in the recent past acquired positions in Wendy's International Inc., McDonald's Corporation, J.C. Penney, General Growth Properties, Borders Group, Fortune Brands, Ceridian Corp and Alexander & Baldwin., pressuring the management of those companies to improve profits by selling either real estate assets or corporate divisions. The investment company in turn benefits when the asset liquidation returns capital in the form of dividends and a higher share price, whereby Pershing divests itself of its holdings at a higher share price. In the case of Wendy's International, Wendy's management bought back shares following the forced sale of the their subsidiary Tim Hortons through an IPO, while Pershing unloaded most of their shares.
