About Tiger Global Management
Tiger Global Management was founded by Charles Coleman, one of the ‘Tiger Cubs’. Tiger Cubs or Seeds are those hedge fund owners who once worked under or received funding for launch of their individual hedge fund from Julian Robertson, the famous investment guru and the founder of Tiger Management. The firm was established in 2001, and since then, it has successfully returned an annualized return of 21%. As of now, it manages $4.4 billion worth of assets.
Tiger Global manages hedge funds and private equity funds by investing in local and global public and private equity markets. It also invests locally in income markets. As the name suggests, Tiger Global conducts its business globally. The firm primarily focuses its investments in China, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. In addition to having headquarters in New York, it has offices in Beijing, China and Mumbai, India. In 2009, the office in India temporarily shut down operations; however, it restarted operations after a hiatus of one year.
