Founding Partner & CEO
Viking Global Investors, Greenwich
2022 Net Worth: $6.6 billion
More Information

Darien resident Andreas Halvorsen’s Viking Global Investors LP did pretty well in 2020, returning 25% to investors after management and performance fees, according to Yahoo Finance. And it wasn’t a one-off, either.

From 1999 to 2009, Viking Global’s Equities III fund generated average returns of 22%, according to the financial website. The fund has seen some down years too, like 2016, when Viking lost 4% net of fees, primarily because of some bad bets on pharmaceutical stocks.

The fund manages capital with offices in Greenwich, New York, Hong Kong, London and San Francisco. Viking uses fundamental analysis to select investments, primarily public and private equity interests across industries and geographies.

As of the fourth quarter of 2020, Viking’s investment portfolio included companies like Microsoft, BridgeBio Pharma Inc., Adaptive Biotechnologies Corp., Fidelity National Information Services Inc., T-Mobile U.S. Inc. and Alphabet Inc.

Interesting fact: Don’t get in a fistfight with the 61-year-old Halvorsen — besides his net worth north of $6 billion, according to Forbes, he’s a former officer in the Royal Norwegian Navy’s SEAL Team.
