D. E. Shaw & Co., L.P. is a global investment management firm founded in 1988 by David E. Shaw and based in New York City. The firm has offices in New York, Hong Kong, Hyderabad, Shanghai and Tokyo. The company has made investments in technology, wind power, real estate, and financial services firms. The subsidiaries of the company acquired the toy store FAO Schwarz and eToys.com. The firm was founded by David E. Shaw, a former Columbia University faculty member, and has more than 1,300 employees. David Shaw directed the company from 1988 to 2001 but by 2010, the firms management structure evolved into a six-member executive committee. In 1997, the firm returned capital to most of its early investors in favor of a structured credit facility of nearly $2 billion from Bank of America, with terms that allowed D.E. Shaw & Co. to keep a higher fraction of profits than hedge fund investors normally allow. After the Russian debt default in 1998, the company suffered losses in its fixed-income trading.
