Tiger Global Management, LLC (Tiger Global) is an American investment firm. It mainly focuses on internet, software, consumer, and financial technology industries.

Background[edit]

Chase Coleman III was a protégé of Julian Robertson and from 1997 to 2000 worked as a technology analyst for the firm, Tiger Management.[3] In 2000, Robertson closed Tiger Management, and entrusted Coleman with over $25 million to manage, making him one of the 30 or more so-called Tiger Cubs, fund managers who started their fund management careers with Tiger Management.[4]

In 2001, Coleman established Tiger Technology (which would be later renamed to Tiger Global Management, LLC),[2] as a hedge fund to invest in the public equity market. In 2003, Tiger Global expanded into investing in the private equity market.[5]

From the period of 2007 to 2017, according to the Preqin Venture Report, Tiger Global raised the highest amount of capital amongst venture capital firms.[6]

In 2020, Tiger Global earned its investors $10.4 billion, more than any other hedge fund on the annual list of the top 20 managers compiled by London fund-of-funds firm LCH Investments.[2]

Business overview[edit]

Tiger Global has two strategies that each manage roughly the same amount of capital.

The public equity business uses equity strategies to invest in publicly traded companies.[7] Its notable funds include Tiger Global Investments (the firm’s flagship long-short fund) and Tiger Global Long Opportunities (long-only).[2]

The private equity strategy targets growth-oriented private companies from early to late stages, with an emphasis on businesses based in the U.S., China and India. Tiger Global is estimated to invest around 30% of its capital in early stage (Series A and B) startups, and 20.5% directed toward Series C startups. The head of the Private Equity business was Lee Fixel until March 2019.

Tiger Global is based in New York with affiliate offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore and Bangalore.
