Hedge Fund - Abdiel Capital Advisors

Colin Moran And Geoffrey Gentile Bio, Returns, AUM, Net Worth

Abdiel Capital Advisors is an activist hedge fund that was co-founded by Colin Moran, its current managing partner, who holds a B.A. in History and Economics from Duke University, an M.St. in Modern History from Oxford University and a J.D. from Stanford Law School. Before starting Abdiel Capital Advisors in 2006 he cut his teeth as an investment banking associate at Goldman Sachs, and later on as a partner at Chieftain Capital. Colin Moran owns 50-75% of the fund, and Geoffrey Gentile, a partner at Abdiel Capital Advisors owns 25-50% of it.

The fund’s investment philosophy is focused on publicly traded companies that will bring market share over a longer course of time. According to their statement, the fund ‘has widely outperformed the market since its 2006 inception’. We couldn’t find any data about their recent returns, however we know that they outperformed the market by high single digits in their earlier years. In 2009, Abdiel Capital Advisors reported returns of 7% per annum since its inception vs.  –1% for the S&P 500 for the same period. As of June 2018, Abdiel Capital Advisors holds almost $1.1 billion in regulatory assets under management.
