TCI Boss, Charity-Running Wife Split

Jun 24 2013 | 10:24am ET

One of the hedge fund industry's most prominent power couples has separated and will divorce, according to a published report.

The Children's Investment Fund's Christopher Cooper-Hohn and his wife, Jamie, have split, The Telegraph reports. A friend tells the newspaper that "they are living separate lives and are expected to divorce. It's very sad."

The Cooper-Hohns met at Harvard Business School. When they married, the former Chris Hohn and the former Jamie Cooper both took each other's last names.

Jamie Cooper-Hohn, a Chicago native, runs the charity that gave TCI its name, and she and her estranged husband are among the world's most generous philanthropists. The Children's Investment Fund Foundation handed out almost £1 billion between 2006 and 2011, and earlier this month committed US$787 million to fight children's malnutrition. But TCI in March said it would end its practice of donating a portion of its fees to the foundation, saying it was "large enough."

The Cooper-Hohns have four children, including 12-year-old triplets.
