Fund Structure and Investment Focus

Ackman plans to establish a closed-end fund concentrating on a select portfolio of 12 to 24 large-cap, investment-grade companies in North America, identified for their “durable growth” potential.

This approach, detailed in a recent regulatory filing, highlights the absence of a minimum investment requirement, making it accessible to a broad investor base.

Fee Structure and Incentives

Diverging from the conventional hedge fund fee model, which typically involves a 2% management fee and a 20% performance fee, Ackman’s fund introduces a more investor-friendly fee structure.

For the initial 12 months, the management fee will be waived, transitioning to a straightforward 2% fee thereafter, with no performance fee applied.

Market Impact and Ackman’s Vision

Ackman expressed in the filing his ambition for the fund to become a leading entity among listed closed-end funds, propelled by his high-profile reputation and substantial retail investor following.

He anticipates that this combination will foster significant interest and liquidity in the market.
