Tiger Global Management’s private equity business continues to be as active in the new year as it was in the fourth quarter of last year. …The private equity group is separate from the firm’s two hedge funds — Tiger Global LP and Tiger Global Ltd. — which manage roughly $6 billion and are run on a day-to-day basis by partner Feroz Dewan, as well as Tiger Global co-founder Charles (Chase) Coleman III.

China: Funds on the edge (FT)
Liu Yijun runs the most successful, oldest and biggest hedge fund that almost no one has ever heard of: Prime Capital Management. From offices high in a gold-coloured Shanghai tower, the highly secretive manager controls more than $3bn. He invests exclusively in Chinese companies selected by a disciplined team of researchers who are among the best paid in the country. In a decade of stockpicking with almost no ability to hedge any of its bets in China’s rudimentary markets, Prime has still managed to deliver average annual returns of almost 26 per cent, with just one losing year, according to documents from the fund.

Ex-Soros Trader Eyes Frontier Markets (Finalternatives)
Plummeting stock prices in emerging markets aren’t deterring one Soros Fund Management veteran.

Zuaiter’s Jadara Capital Partners will avoid the more established emerging markets, including China, India and Russia. …Zuaiter worked at Soros Fund Management from 2006 through 2011, when firm founder George Soros returned outside capital and turned the firm into a family office.

Chatham owns 28 percent of Revel…. During a brief hearing before the commission, Evan Ratner, a principal of Chatham, did not discuss the company’s future plans.
