Institutional Investor Background
Scout Capital Management* was an independently owned, registered investment advisor that was co-founded by Adam Weiss and James Crichton in 1999. In January of 2014, Weiss and Crichton announced that they were shutting down the firm, so that Weiss could stop managing funds for external investors.
Shortly thereafter, Crichton launched his own hedge fund, Hitchwood Capital Partners, one of the largest fund launches in 2014.
Prior to founding Scout Capital, Mr. Crichton worked for Zweig-Dimenna. Before shutting its doors, Scout Capital managed the Scout Capital Partners, Scout Capital Partners II, Scout Capital Fund, Scout Capital Fund II and Scout Family Partners hedge funds.
