Overall Ranking (NA)

The Overall Ranking is a score from 1 star (very bad) to 5 stars (excellent) generated based on the Company Reviews of current and former employees at this company, taking everything into account.

The number you see in the middle of the donut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few reviews). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

The Overall Ranking is generated based on the Company Reviews.

Company Details

Scottwood is a value-based, long/short hedge fund that invests in debt and equity across all asset classes. The firm specializes in credit-influenced, distressed situations.
Known for delivering some of the best risk-adjusted returns on Wall Street, Scottwood Capital Management was praised as the rare hedge fund that not only generated alpha, but was also non-correlated to the markets.
With an investment team of stellar analysts and traders, for ten years Scottwood posted an average of 12% net gains per year with little of the volatility or drawdowns experienced by most other fund managers. Scottwood, run by Edward Perlman, gained recent attention when it decided to give all its clients’ money back at the height of the firm’s success, an action not often seen in the hedge fund industry. Scottwood today no longer accepts investor funds, but rather is run as a family office by Mr. Perlman. Many of the world’s best fund managers have followed in the same path.
