About Us

The Baupost Group is a Boston-based investment manager with a long-term, value-oriented, multi-strategy approach to investing.

In 1982, Baupost was formed by its four founding families to thoughtfully invest, protect, and compound their wealth over multiple generations. Today, while the firm has grown and evolved, these objectives remain at the core of our approach as we serve the interests of our clients — families, foundations, endowments, and other like-minded institutions.   

With a broad and flexible mandate, we invest across a wide range of asset classes, including publicly traded debt and equity securities, private credit, private equity, and real estate investments.  CEO and Portfolio Manager Seth Klarman has overseen the firm’s investments since inception and now works alongside the firm’s President Jim Mooney and an extensive team of skilled and experienced investment partners and analysts to thoughtfully steward our clients’ capital.    

Our Culture

At Baupost, we dedicate ourselves to the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of our business.  This involves the tireless search for investment opportunity, rigorous fundamental analysis, and a dedication to continuous process improvement that extends to firm operations and management.  Our culture is highly collaborative, where all employees are given the chance to grow and prosper.  We value diversity on the team, as it leads to deeper conversations, more comprehensive and thoughtful analysis, and better outcomes. 

We endeavor to be good corporate citizens.  We work with and support organizations in Boston and beyond that are making positive contributions to our communities and industry.
