Any info on Elliott?
Anyone know anything about them? Few questions below
Are they mostly an activist shop or do they also still dabble in distressed? Do they have specific analysts for the public/private activist stuff and distressed or do analysts do a bit of everything?
Anyone know if they take summer analysts? Feel like I've seen a few on linkedin, and maybe the exceptional intern gets a FT offer i don't know.
Anyone have data on comp? Ppl on this forum love Elliott so I assume analysts must be making 7 figures and for PMs, god knows how much. Elliott had a $1bn+ position in Twitter, and I'm pretty sure they more than 2x their money in that over the past year, they're out now. I'm sure the guy who put on that position got paid 8 figures.
Here are my thoughts on one particular subject: returns/performance. They may only put up like 12%, but Elliott has created an extremely unique, attractive, uncorrelated product for its LPs. They got to $40bn+ for a reason.
