Julian Robertson, who founded Tiger Management in 1980, is a legend in the hedge fund industry. His Tiger Fund has spun-off dozens of so-called “Tiger Cubs.” Many of these cubs, which include Maverick Capital, Viking Capital and Lone Pine Capital to name just a few, have since spun off their own successful funds.
John Griffin, a former Tiger Analyst, is the founder of Tiger Cub Blue Ridge Capital. Along with analyst/PM David Greenspan, John teaches a course to select Columbia Business School students called “The Investor’s Edge: Advanced Investment Research.” In the past, students have presented their final research memos to a panel of judges that included Julian Robertson.
Mr. Robertson talks on CNBC about a range of topics, from the risk inflation poses to the economy to the U.S. dependence on China and Japan to fund its debt.
