Farallon Capital uses a simple strategy. It looks to achieve the highest returns through using fundamental, bottom-up analysis. Tom Steyer used a variety of investment strategies, employing them on an opportunistic basis. These strategies include credit investments, value investments, event-driven investments, merger arbitrage, real estate investments, and direct investments. Farallon makes investments in economies around the world, including both developed and emerging markets, and public and private debt. Steyer determined the suitability of an investment independently on a fundamental basis. And, he must have been doing something right. As of the end of 2011, Farallon was the 14th largest hedge fund in the world, with over $21 billion in assets under management.
