Chase Coleman’s Top Stock Picks $AAPL $GOOG $FTR $V $MA $PCLN

TIGER GLOBAL MANAGEMENT LLCCharles Payson Coleman III, “Chase,” is a Tiger Cub who got his bearings at Julian Robertson’s Tiger Management. At 36, he is one of the younger billionaire hedge fund managers and runs Tiger Global, a long/short equity fund with ~$6 billion in AUM, which is co-managed by Feroz Dewan. Coleman’s fund was seeded with $25 million from Robertson in 2000. At such a young age, you might ask how Coleman got into Robertson’s good graces in the first place. Well, it turns out that Coleman grew up with Robertson’s son Spencer. That being said, Coleman has been very successful in his own right. Last year, Tiger Global was the top performing hedge fund, returning 45%. Tiger Global tends to be weighted heavily in the technology sector, no surprise since Coleman was a tech analyst at Tiger Management for three years. And with the launch of a private equity arm in January 2011, the firm has invested in the likes of Zynga, Facebook, and Linkedin. A fellow hedge-fund executive notes that Coleman “invests in these things when they’re already at a couple hundred million in revenue. He’s not a VC guy, but he helps create valuations of these companies at the pre-IPO stage.”

As a descendant of Peter Stuyvesant, the last Dutch Director-General of the colony of New Netherland which eventually became New York as we know it today, Coleman is of “old money.”
