When Wall Street speaks of hedge fund managers, Julian Robertson is the name that inevitably comes to mind. Robertson's fund, Tiger Management, has been making news for nearly 25 years and now available is an eye-opening look at this legend by hedge fund historian Daniel A. Strachman. In Julian Robertson: A Tiger in the Land of Bulls & Bears, Strachman was granted unprecedented access to this hedge fund complex and the result is the exploration and analysis of Robertson's role in the development and popularity of hedge funds.
Julian Robertson is a legend in the world of hedge funds and in this book, Strachman reveals how he was able to grow Tiger Management into the $21 billion company it is today. This book is a biography that offers an in-depth look into Robertson the man, the fund complex he created and also looks at those he trained along the way.
This book follows Robertson from his youth in Salisbury, North Carolina and up through to his present status on Wall Street. This book also traces his inspired climb to the top, and his often-controversial tenure at the helm of one of the most successful hedge fund organizations in the world.
