Mr. Sundheim founded D1 Capital in 2018, and since its inception, the fund has impressed its investors by raking in hefty basis points for its annual return. The executive chose the online retailer Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)'s founder Mr. Jefferey Bezos' management philosophy when naming his fund. This philosophy, dubbed as 'Day One' by the Amazon founder, aims to keep a business on its feet by operating as if it were a new player in the industry instead of an established entity. Mr. Bezos developed the strategy after his time at the investment firm D.E. Shaw, which practiced what is dubbed as the 'regret-minimization framework.'
As far as his personal life goes, Mr. Sundheim is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, from where he received his Bachelor's of Sciences in Finance in 1999. After graduating, the executive would go on to work at the now-infamous Bear Stearns in 1999 as a merchant banker, a position he would occupy for a little over three years. After Bear Stearns, Mr. Sundheim would spend fourteen years at the hedge fund Viking Global Investors. At Viking, where he started working as an analyst in 2002, the now hedge fund owner would go on to become the firm's chief investment officer before leaving in 2017. A month after leaving, he would go on and start D1 Capital Partners. The billionaire is worth $2.5 billion as of December 2021 according to Forbes Magazine.
D1 Capital, or 'Day One' Capital, had a portfolio worth $17 billion as the third quarter of last year ended. It targets companies across several industries such as industrials, technology, media, financial services, and telecommunications.
