Lone Pine Asia Chief Launches US$500 Million Hedge Fund

Jul 17 2012 | 12:34pm ET

Lone Pine Capital's former Asia chief has launched his hedge fund with US$500 million—and another half-billion dollars in commitments.

Tybourne Capital Management's maiden fund debuted on July 2. The long/short Equity Fund will focus on company fundamentals. The Hong Kong-based firm will specialize in consumer names, financials, technology, media, telecommunications and industrials investments, weighted towards Asia but investing globally.

Tybourne was founded by Eashwar Krishnan and Tanvir Ghani, the former late of Lone Pine and the latter formerly head of capital introductions in Asia-Pacific at Goldman Sachs. Krishnan serves as the firm's chief investment officer, having spent a dozen years at Lone Pine before his departure late last year.

Tybourne, the latest in a string of large Asian hedge fund launches, has a three-year lockup, Bloomberg News reports, with a US$5 million minimum investment requirement. It will also give investors a fee discount if it is below its high-water mark.
