The Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990 with the goal of providing science with unparalleled insight into the nature of distant celestial objects and our universe. Situated above Earth’s atmosphere in order to be free of visual “noise” in its mission to create detailed imagery of our universe, the telescope is still in use today. The Hubble Deep Field image, created over ten days in late 1995, was a landmark achievement that represented the deepest image captured at the time and yielded one of the earliest pictures of young galaxies.
Deep Field Asset Management was founded in 2014 by Jordan Moelis to invest with a deep, long-range and unobstructed focus. Drawing on his experience at Oaktree Capital, Goldman Sachs’ Special Situations Group and most recently Serengeti Asset Management, Mr. Moelis’s investment philosophy is predicated on diligently and methodically evaluating a prospective investment’s long-term quality and sustainable outlook, while filtering out the “noise” that can give rise to poor investment decisions.
With a philosophically aligned team and a long-term capital base, Deep Field Asset Management’s objective is to continue generating attractive returns for its investors by seeing both the most nuanced details and the big picture for years to come.
The Hubble Deep Field is an image of a small region in the constellation Ursa Major, constructed from a series of observations by the Hubble Space Telescope. It covers an area about one 24-millionth of the whole sky and was assembled from 342 separate exposures taken with the Space Telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 over ten consecutive days between December 18 and 28, 1995.
The Hubble Deep Field image is the result of Unrivaled Imagination, Unmatched Effort, and Unrelenting Focus
