Analyzing Icahn Capital’s 13F using RADiENT

June 2, 2022

The Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) Form 13F is a quarterly report that is required to be filed by all institutional investment managers with at least $100 million in assets under management. It discloses their equity holdings and can provide insights into what the smart money is doing in the market.

Hedge funds are required to file Form 13F within 45 days after the last day of the calendar quarter. Most funds wait until the end of this period in order to conceal their investment strategy from competitors and the public.

The 13F filing covers a wide spectrum of details on the trading and performance activities of the firms. This data is not always well structured and therefore hard for users to analyze. RADiENT provides all the disclosed information in a structured and visually appealing manner.

Form 13F data on RADiENT is regularly updated and cross-referenced with the firm's latest Form ADV and its respective funds on the RADiENT screener.
