Chopra's Tiger Ratan Fund Up 13% in February, 19% YTD

Mar 9 2015 | 12:49pm ET

Nehal Chopra’s prescient decision to shift focus to Europe from the U.S. at the end of last year is paying off. Her Tiger Ratan Capital Fund booked a 13% return in February and has gained 19% year to date. 

Founded by Chopra in 2009 and seeded by Tiger Management guru Julian Robertson, Tiger Ratan soundly beat most of its peers during the month. The average hedge fund returned 2% in February and is up 1.7% for the year, according to Hedge Fund Research.

According to media reports, Chopra shifted Tiger Ratan’s focus from the U.S. to Europe on the premise that quantitative stimulus from the ECB would drive equity markets there. So far, she’s been right – European stocks have risen nearly 15% so far this year, compared to less than one percent for the U.S.’s S&P 500 Index.   

Chopra’s fund returned 22% in 2014 and has generated an average 19% annual return since inception, according to Bloomberg. New York-based Ratan Capital Management has approximately $1 billion in assets under management.
