Julian Robertson, the legendary investor and successful benefactor of a number of start-up hedge funds, is backing a new Asia-based hedge fund. According to Reuters, Tiger Capital will be a reincarnation of Hong Kong-based Tiger Asia Management, which was closed amidst a regulatory investigation.

Run Ye, Junji Takegami and Hoyon Hwang, all formerly of Tiger Asia Management, will run Tiger Capital. 80-year old Julian Robertson expects to capitalize on the emergence of successful new startup companies as well as the negativity of fraud that pervades in the region, which makes it, in his opinion, ‘the best area in the world” to operate a hedge fund.
