Viking Global Investors LP is a global investment firm founded in 1999. We manage approximately $44 billion of capital for our investors. Viking has offices in Greenwich, New York, Hong Kong, London and San Francisco and is registered as an investment adviser with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Since its inception, Viking has employed a research intensive, long-term focused investment approach. We use fundamental analysis to select investments, primarily public and private equity interests, across industries and geographies. We generally invest in companies based on a thorough assessment of their business models and fundamentals, the quality of their management teams and cyclical and secular industry trends.
Our organizational structure decentralizes investment research, analysis and decision-making and centralizes risk management. This approach enables us to capitalize on a broad range of ideas and expertise while ensuring that risks are reviewed and managed comprehensively and with clear accountability.
We are committed to delivering excellence across all functions and actively seek to manage business and operational risks. Our operational managers are experienced practitioners and lead their teams based on a comprehensive understanding of overall firm strategy. This makes it possible for our investment professionals to focus on their core responsibilities.
Vikings share a clear objective and common culture. Our goal is to provide best-in-class performance for our investors. Our people are intellectually curious, constantly strive to improve and adhere to the highest standards of professionalism and integrity.
