Not many 25-year-olds on Wall Street show up to work one day with a Super Bowl ring on their finger. 2019 Forum presenter Grant Bowman did just that—and it was only the beginning of his career. He worked on the high-yield desk at Lehman Brothers, which would soon place him at the epicenter of the Great Financial Crisis. He then joined Blue Ridge Capital, the quintessential New York-based, long-short Tiger cub that helped to define institutional hedge fund investing for a generation.
Grant spent a decade at Blue Ridge, rising to managing director. Grant recently launched Hunter Capital, an Ohio based investment partnership. Hunter is purposely based out of Ohio to help create independence in everything it does (thought, capital, etc.). Hunter Capital’s strategy is to look for “massive winners and catastrophic losers” over long periods of time, in areas of the market where it has a structural advantage the typical long-short fund does not enjoy.
