Tiger Cubs To Host Robertson's 80th

Sep 25 2012 | 1:52am ET

Hedge fund royalty will be fêted on Saturday night by his princes.

Tiger Management founder Julian Robertson's "Tiger cubs" are set to host a party to mark Robertson's 80th birthday this weekend. The affair will take place at Lincoln Center, which has benefited from Robertson's philanthropic largesse: The hedge fund legend is a trustee emeritus of the performing arts center and gave it $25 million in 1998 to create a plaza named for his wife, Josie, who died two years ago.

Robertson actually reached his octogenary in June, but protégés John Griffin and Chase Coleman, of Blue Ridge Capital and Tiger Global Management, respectively, along with Robertson's three sons, will wait until 7 p.m. Saturday to celebrate the milestone.

According to AR magazine, it's unclear who will attend other than the hosts. But it's likely that other Tiger veterans, including Maverick Capital Management's Lee Ainslie, Lone Pine Capita's Stephen Mandel and Viking Global Investors' Andreas Halvorsen, will be there. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a maybe.
