BlueMountain Capital Management

The “bucket-busting”alternative asset manager marks 15 years
(L-R) Stephen Siderow (Co-President) and Andrew Feldstein (CEO & CIO), Co-Founders of BlueMountain Capital Management.

BlueMountain Capital Management’s reputation has only grown since co-founder Andrew Feldstein’s successful 2012 bet against JP Morgan’s infamous London Whale, Bruno Iksil. As the firm marks its 15th year in business, Feldstein and fellow co-founder and Harvard Law School classmate, Stephen Siderow, are putting the finishing touches to an ambitious multi-year expansion and evolution of the firm’s offerings.

“One of our core strengths has always been our ability to evolve and expand investment strategies to attempt to take advantage of changing markets and new investment opportunities,”says Siderow, who is also co-president of the firm with Michael Liberman.

The firm’s first non-credit strategy – volatility trading, across multiple asset classes – was launched just a year after it was co-founded by Feldstein and Siderow.

Over the past two years BlueMountain has hired dozens of senior investment professionals to expand its offering of strategies covering its more than $20 billion under management. New offerings include global governments, municipals and agency mortgages as well as private investing in infrastructure.

The firm has also augmented its New York and London-based teams managing existing strategies that cover: fundamental discretionary equity; systematic equity; hybrid credit; structured equity; fundamental credit; distressed and special situations; and private investing in healthcare.

“We’ve completed the majority of the heavy lifting needed for the expansion and evolution of our investment team and capital allocation process,”says Feldstein, who is also the firm’s chief executive officer and chief investment officer. “We’ve expanded and restructured some of our longstanding strategies and developed several new ones – all with a renewed commitment to our distinctive integrated culture,”he continues.
