Tiger Global’s Private Equity Arm Gets Busy (InstitutionalInvestorsAlpha)
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. In January the two hedge funds lost 2.7 percent and 2.2 percent, respectively. Last year the two funds rose roughly 14 percent.

Hedge fund Kingdon Capital sees room for growth at Energy Transfer Equity (Reuters)
Energy Transfer Equity LP is undervalued by 50 percent and could receive a shot in the arm from the company’s plan to issue this year a new master limited partnership security tied to its Lake Charles natural gas liquefaction facility, hedge fund Kingdon Capital Management said. “Their intrinsic value is $60 today,” Kingdon’s Philip Hilal said at the 2014 Harbor Investment Conference late on Wednesday. Energy Transfer Equity ended trading on Thursday up $1.27, or 2.9 percent, at $44.04.

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. Ahmad Zuaiter is readying a frontier markets hedge fund, focusing on countries such as Argentina, Iraq, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates and Zimbabwe. 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. He divided his years at Soros between New York and Istanbul, and formerly worked at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.

Hedge Fund Officially Allowed To Become Only Thing Gambling At Or On A.C. Casino (DealBreaker)
The state Casino Control Commission granted final approval to Chatham Asset Management, a hedge fund that is part of a lender group that emerged with an ownership stake in Revel following its bankruptcy last year. 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. It said last year it is pursuing “strategic options,” which is code in the industry for looking at a sale or a bankruptcy filing.
