Our History

In 2001, Philip Falcone capitalized on the significant opportunities within the distressed marketplace and became the Chief Investment Officer of Harbinger Capital Partners upon its inception. Through conviction in his ability to identify value in credit/distressed, Mr. Falcone led an investment team focused on opportunities in credit.

Over the next few years, as the distressed credit market subsided and the broader investment universe became more sophisticated, Harbinger adjusted its strategy accordingly and, as most investment firms focused upon distressed opportunities do, evolved into special situation and event strategies as well. With extensive experience in several different strategies, Harbinger was able to respond to market fluctuations over time with rigor, efficiency and built-in flexibility. As Harbinger reached a critical mass, it was able to engage proactively with companies in order to enhance value.

Although Harbinger's expansion since its inception has been substantial, the underlying work ethic and conviction to succeed, the principles on which the company was started, continue to define Harbinger Capital Partners today.
