The Perlman Family Office invests in the U.S. public securities markets. Inception was December 2012. Net returns for 2013 were +34.34%, with a Sharpe ratio of 4.07, and ranked 3rd best among all event-driven funds tracked by Barclayhedge and Eurekahedge. Performance for 2014 exceeds the gains of the S&P 500 index and the majority of hedge funds. Information is included in industry databases and indexes.


Combining his personal savings with funds from longtime clients, Edward "Eddie" Perlman launched his hedge fund Scottwood Capital Management in December 2001, after working for 17 years on the bond trading desks of top Wall Street firms. With good investment performance, he was able to attract enough investors to build Scottwood into a $985 million firm that outperformed the markets and the majority of its peers for ten years. Today, he manages private capital in the eponymous single family office he set up in 2012, after returning all of his hedge fund clients' money in 2011. Mr. Perlman does not accept any external investor money to manage.

With a ten-year track record, Mr. Perlman generated approximately 12% net annualized returns, without the ups and downs suffered by others in the volatile financial markets. His best year was 2009 when he gained a net 44.05%. His worst year was 2008 when he lost a net 7.65%, despite having converted the entire Scottwood fund into 100% cash to ride out the financial market crisis.

In 2010, Barron’s Magazine ranked Scottwood in its Penta list of the "Top 100 Hedge Funds" in the world, based on one- and three-year performance. In 2009, Hedge Fund Markets awarded Scottwood First Place as “best event-driven fund” in the U.S. Separately, the same year, Absolute Return selected Scottwood as a final nominee for the top U.S. event-driven fund on the basis of its risk-adjusted returns.
