CQS Founder To Be Knighted

Jun 17 2013 | 12:57pm ET

Hedge fund manager Michael Hintze is adding a few letters to his name.

The CQS founder has been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to the arts. Hintze is a major donor to London's museums, notably the National Gallery and Victoria and Albert Museum.

He's also been a major donor to the U.K.'s ruling Conservative Party, having donated more than £1.5 million. The government crafts the list of those to be honored, known as the Birthday Honors List.

Sir Michael Hintze will get the knighthood in spite of his involvement in a scandal that cost the U.K.'s defense minister his job.
