Hedge fund releases 2nd-quarter portfolio

ValueAct Holdings LP (Trades, Portfolio), the investment firm founded by Jeff Ubben in 2000, disclosed its portfolio for the second quarter last week.

Known for its activist investments, the San Francisco-based hedge fund concentrates on acquiring significant ownership stakes in companies it believes are fundamentally undervalued. The investment team seeks out-of-favor companies that are mispriced for a specific reason; ValueAct then works productively with management to maximize shareholder value. After stepping down as chief investment officer in July 2017, handing the reins to Mason Morfit, Ubben announced in June he left the firm to pursue social investing.
