Bridgewater's Jensen, Coleman, Weinstein Among '40 Under 40'

Oct 12 2012 | 11:59am ET

There aren't many hedge fund managers of this year's Internet-heavy 40 Under 40 list from Fortune magazine, but those that made it crowd the top of the ranking.

Three hedgies made the cut: Bridgewater Associates co-CEO Greg Jensen, 38, was the highest-ranking hedgie at number five, behind the likes of Google's Larry Page and Facebook's Mark Zuckerburg. Tiger Global Management's Chase Coleman was 10th of the putative 40—there are actually many more due to an astonishing number of ties—and Saba Capital Management's Boaz Weinstein was 12th.

Coleman is 37 and Weinstein 39.

The list also included at least one former hedge fund manager: Salman Khan, formerly of Connective Capital and Wohl Capital Management, who was honored for his online—what else?—tutoring empire, the Khan Academy.
