Sahm Adrangi, a hedge fund credit trader, had an admirable career on Wall Street that extended slightly over a decade. The Penn State graduate has quite a substantial amount of GNC stock despite being a youthful retiree. Before his unexpected leave from the financial capital of the world, Wall Street, Sahm Adrangi worked with Merrill Lynch trading credit for three years. He would eventually land a position trading credit for Longacre, which at the time was a three billion dollar hedge fund.
Sahm Adrangi would ultimately create the hedge fund Kerrisdale Capital Management before leaving Wall Street in June of 2015. His current retirement, however, has not prevented him from continued investments and earnings. It is said the young financial genious, Sahm Adrangi, once raised approximately 100 million dollars from investors in order to bet against a single stock. Such spontaneity in the financial investment industry is what sets apart true masters of Wall Street from marginal players.
Adrangi, who currently alternates between a Soho pad and a Hamptons’ crib created Kerrisdale Capital with one million dollars. The company is now worth 500 million dollars. As is the case in any other line of business, the success of Adrangi’s creation, Kerrisdale Capital, will ultimately be judged by how well it performs in comparison to companies of similar ilk. Consider this, Investor Almanac states, “Since inception, Kerrisdale is up 1,357.3% vs 202.5% for S&P 500 and 58.5% for Barclay Hedge Fund Index” (www.investoralmanac.com).
In spite of his lucrative investments, massive earnings and dedication to a career premised in financial investment, the young financial guru’s main interest appears to be his relatively new tech entrepreneur/reality TV star and girlfriend, Kim Taylor. According to sources, she has all but moved in with Adrangi. If his previous financial conquests are an indication of what his future looks like, we have not heard the last of Mr. Adrangi and possibly his love interest, Kim Taylor, and Twitter.com.
