John Paulson Profile

John Paulson is the President and Portfolio Manager of Paulson & Co. Inc. Paulson was ranked by Absolute Return Magazine as the 3rd largest hedge fund in the world managing approximately $29bn in merger, event and distressed strategies. Mr. Paulson received his Masters of Business Administration with high distinction, as a Baker Scholar, from Harvard Business School in 1980. He graduated summa cum laude in Finance from New York University's College of Business and Public Administration in 1978. Prior to forming Paulson in 1994, John was a general partner of Gruss Partners and a managing director in mergers and acquisitions at Bear Stearns.

John Paulson Investing Philosophy

John Paulson, a former mergers and acquisitions banker, established his firm as a merger arbitrage hedge fund manager, seeking to make money from situations when one public company announces plans to take over another. Merger arbitrage hedge funds primarily study equity markets, but they also research the market for credit default swaps, a form of insurance that starts paying out as soon as a credit security falls in value.
