If Tiger Management was a major league baseball team its record as a farm system for successful ballplayers would easily rival the New York Yankees. In an article by Deal Book at the New York Times, the meteoric career of Richard Gerson, a protégé of the founder of Tiger Management, Julian Robertson, is traced from his internship position with the company through the creation of several successful hedge funds involving additional off-spring.

Julian Robertson not only launched their careers, he encouraged their ascendency through new hedge fund ventures. Richard Gerson started Blue Ridge Capital with another Julian Robertson disciple, John Griffen. His new hedge fund, Falcon Edge Capital, has garnered instant credibility due to its Tiger Management lineage. The exclusive club of “Tiger cubs” also includes Lee Ainslie of Maverick Capital, Stephen F. Mandel, Jr. of Lone Pine Capital, Andreas Halvorsen of Viking Global Investors, Dwight Anderson of deep-value investor Ospraie Management, David Gerstenhaber of Argonaut Capital Management, Arnold Snider of Deerfield Management Company, among others.
