Daniel Och is an American billionaire, investor, and hedge fund manager. He founded Och-Ziff Capital Management in 1994, a publicly traded hedge fund firm with a $100 million investment from the Ziff brothers.

Daniel Och began his career at Goldman Sachs in 1982 in the Risk Arbitrage Department. Later, he was promoted as the Head of Propriety Trading in the Equities Division. In 1994, he founded Och-Ziff Capital Management. Och’s investment strategy revolves around following multi strategies while allocating capital, including merger arbitrage, long/short equity, and corporate credit. Also, his fund is globally diversified due to his global reach managing assets in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. This provides the hedge fund with a benefit to grab opportunities within the changing market conditions.

With these strategies, the firm managed to make over $2 billion in 2012, about half of its total profits that year. The hedge fund’s assets under management reached $50 billion in 2015. However, in 2016, Och-Ziff Capital Management Group paid about $200 million to the SEC to settle civil charges of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The billionaire paid $2.2 million to settle SEC charges that he caused certain violations along with CFO Joel M. Frank, who also agreed to settle the charges.

This controversy resulted in investors pulling over $6.9 billion out of the hedge fund firm in 2017, with the firm’s assets declining to $32 billion. But, the hedge fund’s steady performance remained intact, as OZ Master Fund returned 4.7% in 2017.

In 2017, the name of the hedge fund was officially changed to OZ Management and in 2019, Och stepped down from his Chairman position. In August 2019, the hedge fund started to be known by the name of Sculptor Capital Management, with Jimmy Levin performing his duties as the hedge fund’s CEO.

As of Q2 2021, OZ Management’s investment is variegated mainly across four sectors: technology, services, healthcare, and financial. Along with this, the hedge fund also invests in utilities, industrial goods, and basic materials. The hedge fund’s 13F portfolio has over $13.7 billion in managed securities, with the portfolio’s value gaining 1.12% in Q2 2021. Some of the notable stocks in Daniel Och’s 13F portfolio include Amazon.com, Inc.
