William Harnisch founded Peconic Partners in 2000. He worked at Chase Manhattan Bank from 1968-1970 as an analyst before doing an MBA from New York University. He then joined Forstmann-Leff Associates as a Portfolio Manager and Research Analyst in 1978 after getting his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) certification. When William Harnisch left Forstmann-Leff Associates, he had already served as the president as well as chief executive officer at the firm. It was then he founded his own hedge fund and named it after a wealthy Native American tribe in east Long Island.

William Harnisch is known as one of the most pragmatic hedge fund managers in the world. When it comes to investment strategy, he is not a fan of diversification, and rather adopts a 'concentration' approach. He always picks the best stocks to invest in rather than injecting his investment in a wide array of sectors and industries, calling this thinking "Balderdash!".

According to his investment philosophy, sector or industry does not matter as long as you are putting your money in the right stocks.

Some of the notable stocks in Peconic's Q2 portfolio were Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS), and Shopify Inc. (NYSE:SHOP).
