Billionaire hedge-fund manager Dan Loeb was confirmed as Sothebys (NYSE:BID)’s newest director following a closely watched proxy fight between the auction house and its largest shareholder.

Politicians fight back as hedge funders ramp up election spending (CNBC.com)
Tom Steyer‘s attempt to pick political fights over climate change appears to be working. “Tom Steyer is an out-of-state, hyper-partisan, hedge-fund billionaire who is using his fortune to unseat Republicans he doesn’t like,” said Peter Steele, a spokesman for Steyer-target Paul LePage, the Maine governor who is running for re-election. “While liberal billionaires are trying to buy votes, the governor is focused on balancing environmental concerns with the need to attract businesses and increase career opportunities for middle-class Maine families.” Steyer’s NextGen Climate advocacy group recently singled out LePage, claiming that he “denies that climate change is a threat.”

Ackman Said to Plan Public Hedge Fund in London (New York Times)
One of Wall Street’s boldest investors, the billionaire hedge fund manager William A. Ackman, is building an unusual multibillion-dollar war chest. While hedge funds typically raise funds privately, the founder of the $13 billion Pershing Square Capital Management is planning to tap the public stock market. Mr. Ackman is aiming to raise billions of dollars for a closed-end fund that could list on the London Stock Exchange as soon as this summer, according to three people briefed on the matter but not authorized to discuss it.
