Soroban Capital Partners generally employs two investment strategies. For some funds, the firm seeks to generate superior risk-adjusted returns. Soroban seeks to maximize risk-adjusted, absolute returns over the course of various market cycles through a portfolio consisting primarily of long and short equity investments. They aim to limit volatility and systematic risks in both long and short investments through the use of hedges consisting of individual stocks, equity and sector indices, commodities, credit, currencies, and other marketable securities. The firm implements a global, concentrated, highly liquid strategy that seeks to achieve superior returns with a low correlation to equity markets by employing a deep-rooted fundamental, value-driven approach. Soroban seeks opportunities across liquid asset classes, primarily focusing on equity long/short in global markets with a strong emphasis on the US and they may also take long and short positions in debt, convertible instruments, commodities, currencies and other marketable securities to capture equity-like returns. A variety of derivative instruments may be used for both risk management, including portfolio- and position-level hedging, and speculation. Although Soroban generally does not expect to invest in illiquid investments for these funds, they retain the right to do so if the opportunity is compelling and determined to be appropriate for the portfolio’s investment objective and liquidity profile. The funds may employ leverage through borrowings and the use of derivative instruments, although the use of financial leverage is expected to be moderate.For other funds, Soroban seeks to generate superior risk-adjusted returns and to maximize risk-adjusted returns over the course of various market cycles through a portfolio consisting primarily of concentrated equity investments, with the intent that these funds will have a net long bias and will be positively correlated to equity markets.

Although Soroban generally does not expect to invest in illiquid investments for these funds, they retain the right to do so if the opportunity is compelling and deemed appropriate for the funds’ investment objective and liquidity profile. These Funds may also employ leverage withrespect to their portfolios through borrowings and the use of derivative instruments, though the use of financial leverage is expected to be moderate.

Intel Corp. Semiconductors - Wilmington, DE

Intel Corporation is an American multinational semiconductor chip maker corporation headquartered in Santa Clara, California. Intel is the world's largest and highest valued semiconductor chip maker, based on revenue. It is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers. Intel Corporation, founded on July 18, 1968, is a portmanteau of Integrated Electronics (the fact that "intel" is the term for intelligence information was also quite suitable). Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphic chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing. Founded by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore and widely associated with the executive leadership and vision of Andrew Grove, Intel combines advanced chip design capability with a leading-edge manufacturing capability. Though Intel was originally known primarily to engineers and technologists, its "Intel Inside" advertising campaign of the 1990s made it and its Pentium processor household names.
