to External Funds
Access invests in a small number of externally managed funds that complement its core holdings.
While Access Industries and its founder Len Blavatnik are primarily focused on direct investments, the firm invests in a small number of externally managed funds that complement its core holdings.
The emphasis is on traditional long-only public equities and select hedge fund strategies that are suitable for US taxable investors. We look for exceptional, proven portfolio managers (and teams) who have shown themselves to be good stewards of capital over time.
