Hedge Fund - Abrams Bison Investments

Gavin M. Abrams Bio, Returns, AUM, Net Worth

Gavin Abrams founded Abrams Bison Investments in 2000. Gavin Abrams is a value investor with a long-term focus. Gavin Abrams graduated cum laude from Harvard University back in 1994 with a BA in Economics. He gained work experience and knowledge as a research analyst at ESL Investments prior to founding Abrams Bison Investments. His fund has been registered as an investment adviser with the Securities and Exchange Commission since January 2006.

Abrams Bison Investments' primary focus is on long-term equity and risk arbitrage investments. It looks for businesses which Gavin Abrams suspects are currently trading for well below their actual value. The fund is mainly focused on investing in U.S companies. According to the most recent data available, the fund’s 13F portfolio is valued at $728 million, while its plain brochure published in March 2017 revealed that it had total assets under management of $2.8 billion at that time. We recently covered the fund's returns in its earlier years in Abrams Bison Investments Investor Letters. Those were very productive years for the fund, as it significantly outperformed the market in 2009.
