Our History

HPS was founded in 2007, to focus on credit and longer-dated less liquid investment opportunities.  It was originally formed as a division of Highbridge Capital Management within J.P. Morgan Asset Management and known as Highbridge Principal Strategies. 

In March 2016, the principals and employees of HPS acquired the firm from Highbridge and J.P. Morgan Asset Management. 

The firm is led by five principals: Scott Kapnick, Scot French, Michael Patterson, Purnima Puri and Faith Rosenfeld.
