In the period between 2009 and late 2014, Kerrisdale Capital Management grew from a mere one million dollars to 300 million dollars. This growth was achieved without help from any seeders whatsoever. This resulted in a complete ten times increase in the capital given by investors. Since then, the company has been achieving double-digit growth year in year out. At this rate, Kerrisdale Management Capital is beating S and P 500 by a remarkable 1000 points on basics. This success comes to many as a surprise as hedge funds have been reporting complaints about the over the regulations and the raising institutional costs that are basically making it hard for these companies to break through in the industry.
The rise of Kerrisdale Capital Management
Kerrisdale Capital Management was launched in 2009 with a capital of one million dollars. The company is a hedge fund that is situated at the United States New York State. It wasn’t too long after it was launched that the company made headlines. Kerrisdale published reports that exposed fraudulent Chinese Companies that were operating in the United States. This led to the shutdown of a number of companies that were part of the scandal. This breakthrough is the reason behind the sudden rise of the company’s returns in 2011. That year, the company reported a whopping 180 percent in returns. Since then, the company has gone to do tremendous work and achieve great success in the process. What sets it aside from other hedge funds is the fact that it publishes research, a norm that has been the backbone of the company for years. All this is attributed to the man who is the founder, Chief Executive Officer and the face of Kerrisdale Capital Management, Sahm Adrangi.
