Founded in January 1997, The Galleon Group manages a series of funds that specialize in the technology and healthcare industries. Currently The Galleon Group manages five different long/short equity funds: Technology, Healthcare, New Media (Internet), Communications and Life Sciences. The partners of Galleon have significant experience in the technology and health care sectors and, prior to joining Galleon, were senior professionals at Wall Street firms such as Goldman, Sachs & Company, Needham & Company and ING Barings. Galleonâ€™s philosophy and approach differs from that of other hedge funds in the fundamental belief that it is possible to deliver superior returns to their investors without employing leverage. Galleon has built an organization where stock picking on both the long and short sides, rather than market timing, is the key to their success.
