Appaloosa LP is a Limited Partnership that started in 2016 and is primarily owned and controlled by David Tepper.
Appaloosa provides advisory services to Palomino Master Ltd. and Azteca Partners LLC. While Palomino Master Ltd is intended for sophisticated investors and institutional investors, Azteca Partners LLC is an investment vehicle exclusively for principals and employees of Appaloosa. Appaloosa seeks to obtain annual returns substantially in excess of those derived from buy-and-hold strategies for equity securities, investment-grade fixed-income and high-yield debt by purchasing and selling high-yield bonds, bank loans to highly-leveraged companies, sovereign debt and other debt and equity securities, including securities of financially-distressed companies.
In 2019, David Tepper announced that he would convert Appaloosa to a Family Office, maintaining only a handful of investors while returning the remainder of the money to clients.
