NEW YORK, Jan 5 (Reuters) - Hedge fund investor Leon Cooperman, the chief executive of Omega Advisors, told CNBC on Thursday his firm's assets had shrunk to $3.4 billion after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's insider trading charges.
Cooperman told the television network that he was surprised at the SEC's destructive power.
Cooperman, whose firm invested roughly $10.7 billion about two years ago, also said his firm owned shares of Amazon <AMZN.O, Facebook and that Alphabet shares made up about 4 percent of the fund's assets. (Reporting by Sam Forgione; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
