Hedge fund mogul Bill Ackman has raised a record $2.7 billion for his hedge fund IPO that will start trading on the Amsterdam stock exchange later this month. Ackman set out to raise $2 billion, but the deal’s underwriters told their clients Tuesday night that the IPO was oversubscribed and to expect the size of their orders to be scaled back. The offering is expected to hit $3.07 billion, once the “green shoe” overallotment of 10 percent is exercised. Pershing Square Holdings — the offshore fund that is going public on Oct. 13 — will start with $6.2 billion, the largest such IPO ever...The IPO will give him more firepower to take on activist campaigns because Pershing Square’s permanent capital will be equal to almost half its total.
