Company Description

Amherst College educates men and women of exceptional potential from all backgrounds so that they may seek, value, and advance knowledge, engage the world around them, and lead principled lives of consequence. Amherst brings together the most promising students, whatever their financial need, in order to promote diversity of experience and ideas within a purposefully small residential community. Working with faculty, staff, and administrators dedicated to intellectual freedom and the highest standards of instruction in the liberal arts, Amherst undergraduates assume substantial responsibility for undertaking inquiry and for shaping their education within and beyond the curriculum. Amherst College is committed to learning through close colloquy and to expanding the realm of knowledge through scholarly research and artistic creation at the highest level. Its graduates link learning with leadership—in service to the College, to their communities, and to the world beyond.

Investment Manager

The Baupost Group employs a value-oriented, multi-strategy investment approach that seeks to invest their capital to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns over an extended period of time. The firm seek to invest in assets which are undervalued relative to their market price. The Baupost Group invest, either directly or indirectly, in securities and other assets that have some or all of the following characteristics: (1) they are currently out-of-favor, but have good prospects (2) they sell at a significant discount to underlying economic value (3) they have catalysts in place for the realization of underlying value (4) they are highly complex (5) they are somewhat or highly illiquid and (6) they sell at prices below what would reasonably be expected due to market imperfections and inefficiencies, including but not limited to temporary supply demand imbalances, information gaps, and selling pressures. They invest across a range of financial instruments, asset classes and geographic regions. Investments may include securities and assets of all types, including, but not limited to, stock (common, preferred and convertible), warrants, options, swaps, trade claims, bank debt, bonds, other debt instruments including self-originated loans, currency, futures, derivatives, commodities, contract rights, royalty interests, non-US securities and other assets (including in emerging markets), structured investment vehicles, secured and unsecured instruments, ABS, CMBS, RMBS, real estate and related instruments, other complex financial instruments and rights and distressed assets. Securities may be listed or traded on domestic or non-US exchanges or other trading networks (including OTC markets), as well as securities that are unlisted and trade infrequently or not at all.
