Viking Global Investors performs fundamental analysis to select investments primarily in equity securities, but also in debt, credit, derivative and other financial instruments. The firm invests in companies around the world that operate in a wide range of industries. Viking Global manages three types of private investment funds: the Viking Global Equities Funds, long/short hedge funds launched in 1999; the Viking Long Funds, long-only funds launched in 2009; and the Viking Global Opportunities Funds, liquid-illiquid funds launched in 2015. ^The Viking Global Equity Funds (VGE) seek to achieve maximum capital appreciation commensurate with reasonable risk. Viking Global seeks to increase performance of VGE while mitigating general market risk by employing a hedged approach, taking short positions as well as long positions. The firm expects VGE to maintain a relatively low net exposure. Consequently, Viking Global expects that over sustained periods of time, the performance of VGE will be more a function of investment selection than of movements in broad market averages. The Viking Long Funds (VLF) generally replicate the long positions held in VGE’s portfolio. The Viking Global Opportunities Fund (VGO) seeks to maximize risk-adjusted returns by making attractive liquid and illiquid investments globally.
