    American Investment Holdings is the private investment office for Jeff Vinik, former Fidelity Fund manager, and current owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League. Mr. Vinik is the chairman of American Investment Holdings (AIH), a multipurpose investment enterprise he founded in 2013. Through AIH and other personal activities at his office in Tampa, Florida, Mr. Vinik manages his family's various investments, oversees (along with his wife Penny) the Vinik Family Foundation, and is part owner of Strategic Property Partners, his local real estate entity that, in partnership with Cascade Investment, is undertaking a $2 billion mixed use development project to revitalize downtown Tampa. Vinik is owner and chairman of the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning; a minority owner of Fenway Sports Group (parent of the Boston Red Sox, Liverpool Football Club and New England Sports Network); and owner of the Tampa Bay Storm (Arena Football League team). Mr. Vinik left Fidelity to establish his own firm, Vinik Asset Management, a long-short equities hedge fund based in Boston. Over a period of 17 years he delivered net returns of almost 15% per year, growing assets under management from $800 million in 1996 to just under $10 billion. In 2013, Mr. Vinik returned all outside investor assets and closed Vinik Asset Management to focus his efforts on his growing business interests in Tampa. Mr. Vinik is actively involved in a number of charitable organizations, with a particular focus on providing support for children and basic human needs.
