$20 Billion Hedge Fund Opening A Miami Office, & Its Boss Will Relocate Here Permanently

Yet another hedge fund is moving to Miami.

D1 Capital Partners, a $20 billion fund, will open an office here, Bloomberg is reporting.

Founder Dan Sundheim, who moved here temporarily during the Covid-19 crisis, has decided to move here permanently. Some senior staffers are also moving to the area.

D1 will still maintain offices in New York and Hong Kong.

The report on Sundheim’s move is a sharp reversal for Bloomberg.

Just two weeks ago, the news service reported that “many” Wall Street A-listers were eyeing a return from Florida to New York now that the Covid-19 crisis was winding down.

Ironically, Sundheim was the only person actually named in the article who was said to be considering returning. Now, it is clear that he will remain in Florida.

Hedge funds aren’t big employers generally.

Agreed, but Senior employees hire cooks, drivers, nannies, gardeners, assistants, masseuse, pilots, captains, crew, etc. and the wifes go Shopping …

…and philanthropy. Evidence of large-scale philanthropy is much less evident in Miami than it might be. Wealthy arrivals will help support the arts, museums, and provide something besides dog and cat scultures for Museum Park.

You gotta be kidding me…only in a plantation minded wanna be place like this would someone be on his knees thanking the the hedge fund king for sprinkling the ground with some opportunities like the above. You all are jokes down here.

But the start up and companies they invest in would bring higher and more diverse jobs than we currently have.

Hedge funds, especially the ones that specialize in private equity do have many employees they manage via the companies they invest in/take over. I.e Warren Buffet indirectly owns Geico (a large employer) via Berkshire Hathaway (not so large employer).

I know some my not agree but I was one of the people who stood with the governor when he opened up Florida before any other state. It really benefited us and our economy… So much so that many businesses and CEOs are moving here permanently! Talk to anyone in real estate and they will tell you Florida has seen a crazy leap in real estate since covid.

The “governor” opened up the state of Florida’s economy?

Well I guess all Henry Flagler built was a little train set at home then?

No credit given to Desantis for this Florida was on the rise before COVID. Covid helped a little by exposing other markets but Florida was already on the rise.

It is chilling to consider how FL and Miami might be performing if DeSantis had lost in 2018. A real brush with disaster there.

Love or hate the guy, at least he didn’t lock down the entire State, which Gillum would have done while smoking crack and blowing little boys’ blues.

Idk. DeSantis took a gamble and it seems to be paying off for now. I’ve always had the suspicion he’s hiding something. If it turns out he’s lying about the COVID deaths then he’s f**ked. After all, it was kind of shady how gave Publix all the vaccine distribution after their “donations” to his PAC.

Truth be told, although I’m happy all these hedge fund CEOs are moving here and offices “relocate”, the bulk of traders will still remain somewhere else.

Early stages of an “S” curve. If it goes well, more will follow. Few large organizations will just uproot and move. Focus on increasing rate of change over the next year or so.

And the racks and racks of servers that do the “managing”, will those move here, hopefully so. That would mean more IT jobs.

What happened to the tech exodus to Florida or all these big companies moving here, lol, so far just a few rich guys and a handful of their staff. Blackstone is the only significant move, but i guess some is better than none.

Blackstone just recently bought the office building where it just moved in to, MiamiCentral 2 & 3 I believe. If they are investing a couple hundred million dollars on real estate, it bodes well for further relocations from similar firms.

So the money moving in. Hopefully all these hedge funds can produce start ups and create better job opportunities. We need more research funding for our colleges. More investment in emerging tech like blockchain.

Blockchain is not an emerging tech. It’s been around for damn near 30 years and is not the type of technology that you invest in and will transform an economy. It’s basically just an encrypted wallet for people who don’t trust the government or need money laundered

Please go do some research blockchain is so much more and there are new ways to implement the technology into almost ever sector there is. Blockchain is changing currencies, fashion, art(NFT) and so much more!

Anyone returning to NYC after living in FL is swimming against the tide. I think articles that assert that NYC living is superior have probably been written by someone ignorant of all that the great State of FL has to offer. Likely bull feathers.

Hedge funds are more than just the senior management and portfolio team(s). There are marketers, office managers, accountants, and a variety of other support staff. All those people will add to the local economy
