Daniel S. Loeb
We are delighted to announce that Daniel S. Loeb, the Founder, CEO and CIO of $17 billion AUM NYC based hedge fund Third Point Investment Management will be our first guest speaker for the 2020/2021 academic year.

Mr Loeb is one of the most prominent investors in the world and a pioneer in the activist investing space. He follows a value investing strategy and acts as an activist - where an investor buys a significant enough stake in a public to get a position on that companies board, and then pressure the management to make changes the investor believes would unlock shareholder value.
Mr Loeb has served on the board of five publicly traded companies: Ligand Pharmaceuticals; POGO Producing Co.; Massey Energy; Yahoo!; and Sotheby’s, where he helped oversee the successful sale of the company. His fund, Third Point Investment Management, now manages over $17 billion dollars and has generated 14.5% yearly compounded returns since inception in 1995.
Mr Loeb worked at Warburg Pincus, Jefferies, CitiGroup and Island Records prior to forming Third Point and received an A.B in Economics from Columbia from Columbia University in 1983.
