Who We Are
Taconic Capital is a global alternative investment manager that specializes in finding opportunity in market complexity, dislocation and inefficiency. We manage a wide range of investment strategies including opportunistic credit, merger arbitrage, catalyst-driven equities, and real estate, as well as a co-investment platform. Our ability to add value in each of these core strategies is rooted in our expertise investing across the capital structure.
The Taconic Advantage
Our value lies in being attuned to a changing world and investment landscape, which enables us to capitalize on opportunities in a way others cannot, and to elevate our team, the integrity of the firm, and our investors above all.
The Meaning of Our Name and the Roots of Our Evolution
The Taconic Range is a rolling span of wooded hills separating the western border of New England from the Hudson Valley of New York. Characterized by dense forest, Taconic translates from Algonquin as “in the trees.”
Trees are a majestic example of strength and perseverance.
Taconic’s roots as a manager of hedge funds established the trunk from which our business has since branched into new areas, including opportunistic credit and real estate. The longevity, stability, and vigor of our roots promote the growth of new products and strategies as the investment landscape changes and our business evolves.
In many respects, the Taconic of today is not the Taconic of nearly a quarter century ago. However, the firm has endured because it is grounded in the principles established at its founding and its future-focused outlook.
We see the forest for the trees.
