December 8, 2009

Corporate Program past event

Amid the doom and gloom wrought by the global financial crisis, a small group of investment managers correctly assessed the housing crash and financial crisis early on, and have thus served their clients well. Paulson & Co., Inc, led by John Paulson, is one firm often mentioned in this context. Since launching Paulson Partners LP, the firm has consistently, and often dramatically, outperformed the S&P 500. By early 2009, Mr. Paulson’s team had amassed some $19 billion in cash by correctly forecasting the collapse of the subprime mortgage market and financial stocks. During the nascent U.S. economic recovery, Mr. Paulson sees promise in distressed debt, mortgages, bankruptcy debt and capital restructurings. Mr. Paulson discusses his optimism about certain types of investments, yet tempers that with concern about sluggish consumer growth and economic stimulus-fueled inflation moving forward.
