  • Point State Capital – Point State Capital launched in 2011 with $5 billion, all of it from Duquense founder Stanley Druckenmiller and former Duquesne investors. The new fund, which at its debut was $1 billion smaller than former Harvard University endowment chief Jack Meyer’s Convexity Capital Management was at its launch four years ago, was closed to new investors. A half-dozen former Duquesne Capital Management fund managers and the firm’s former vice chairman were part of the second-largest hedge fund launch in history. No hedge funds in 2010 or 2011 launched with more than $1 billion. Despite his $1 billion investment in Point State, Druckenmiller does not have an ownership stake in the firm. Point State is led by former Duquense vice chairman Sean Cullinan as CEO. To emphasize its links with its predecessor firm, New York-based Point State is named after the park in downtown Pittsburgh where Fort Duquense once stood. For his part, Druckenmiller has returned some 98% of the $12 billion managed by Duquense—but not before ensuring that he’d end his career with an unbroken 30-year stretch of positive returns. He plans to open a family office to manage $3 billion of his fortune.
