See Where Billionaire Michael Dell Invests His Money

MSD Capital, run by Glenn Fuhrman and John Phelan, has been formed to manage Michael Dell’s wealth. Since the fund doesn’t have to worry about redemptions or short-term results, its investment portfolio is focused on long-term capital appreciation. MSD Capital isn’t a small firm either. MSD Capital invests in a variety of securities, including private investments, real estate, and placing capital with other fund managers. Its equity portfolio in publicly traded US securities was nearly $600 million at the end of December. The latest 13F filing also shows that the fund has reduced five of its six holdings.
