Iridian Asset Management is an independently owned, value-oriented investment management firm focused on active equity investment strategies for institutional investors, including foundations and endowments, corporate and public pension funds, sub-advised and Taft Hartley funds. As of September 30, 2012, assets under management totalled $7.7 billion in U.S. mid-cap, large-cap and small-cap equity strategies. Iridian was founded in 1996 by David Cohen and Harold Levy, two seasoned investment professionals who have worked side-by-side in the investment industry for over 20 years. Our unique "private business value" approach to investing, which drives our mid-cap and large-cap strategies, has its roots in their early investment careers, which encompassed direct experience in private equity, venture capital, distressed debt and bankruptcy takeovers. In analyzing investment opportunities, our founders learned the importance of focusing on cash-related metrics and in-depth, critical assessment of a company's management — two key factors that have been fundamental in shaping a shared and distinctive investment philosophy. In December 2009, the co-portfolio management team of Jordan D. Alexander and Stephen A. Friscia, Jr. joined Iridian to manage a Small-Cap Value strategy. Jordan and Stephen have worked together since 1998 and have co-managed small cap value strategies as a team since 2000. Today, Iridian is built around a collaborative team of experienced investment professionals managing a range of traditional investment strategies for institutional investors.
