Harbinger Capital Partners LLC is a privately owned hedge fund, founded by Philip Falcone in 2001. Before founding Harbinger, Mr. Falcone was the Head of High Yield trading for Barclay's Capital. The firm focuses on investment opportunities that arise from restructurings, liquidations, event-driven situations, turnarounds, and capital structure arbitrage.
Until being split-off in 2009, Harbinger Capital was a subsidiary of Alabama-based Harbert Management Corporation. In 2008, the firm announced it would be moving to separate offices from its parent, although Harbinger would continue to receive back-office, legal and compliance support from Harbert.
The firm's hedge funds include the Harbinger Capital Partners Master Fund and Harbinger Capital Partners Special Situations Fund LP.
