Pequot Capital Management is a $4.3 billion hedge fund based in Westport, Conn. with offices in New York, California and London.

It was founded in 1998 by Arthur J. Samberg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, to manage the Pequot Family of Funds, which began trading in 1986. Its clients include institutions and high net worth investors.[1]

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in January 2009 reopened an investigation of possible insider trading involving Pequot. The SEC had closed the case two years prior. The SEC is examining whether Pequot traded Microsoft Corp. shares on confidential information provided by a former employee of the technology company that it hired, according to a report in The Chicago Tribune.
