In 2007, he founded Icahn Capital LP, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Icahn Enterprises L.P. Carl Icahn recently announced that he will be returning $1.76 Billion back to his investors. He will continue investing his own money. He is an excellent insider to imitate because his moves are usually bigger than an average hedge fund’s and he has to report them more promptly on 13D forms because he usually takes activist positions.
