The first one is Apollo Global Management Llc (NYSE:APO), a public equity firm in which the fund lowered its stake by 5%, to 4,402,975 shares worth $152.12 million. While this firm occupies 19.43% of the fund’s portfolio, Tableau Software Inc (NYSE:DATA), a software company headquartered in Seattle, occupies 18.11%, as its second biggest position. After decreasing its stake in the company by 3%, the fund owns 1,268,726 of its shares valued at $141.76 million.
Meanwhile, the fund made an investment in Ellie Mae Inc (NYSE:ELLI), a software company that processes U.S. mortgage applications, buying 479,917 shares that were valued at $45.48 million on September 30. In addition, it’s the only position in the portfolio the fund decided to boost (by 1%).

The most significant cuts are recorded in Autodesk Inc (NASDAQ:ADSK), a design software and services company, and Summit Midstream Partners Lp (NYSE:SMLP) a company focused on owning, developing, and operating midstream energy infrastructure assets, in which the fund decreased its stakes by 26% and 25%, respectively.
