From Wikipedia:

Julian H. Robertson Jr., KNZM (Hon) (born 1932) is an American former hedge fund manager. Now retired, Robertson invests directly in other hedge funds, most run by former employees of Robertson’s defunct hedge fund company.

He was born in Salisbury, North Carolina in the United States. Robertson founded the investment firm Tiger Management Corp., one of the earliest hedge funds. Robertson is credited with turning $8 million in start-up capital in 1980 into over $22 billion in the late 1990s, though that was followed by a fast downward spiral of investor withdrawals that ended with the fund closing in 2000.

In 1993, his compensation and share of Tiger’s gain exceeded $300 million. His 2003 estimated net worth was over $400 million, and in September 2009 it was estimated by Forbes at $2.2 billion, a substantial increase from the $1.3 billion estimated the previous year. Robertson said in 2008 that he shorted subprime securities and made money through credit default swaps.The following year, according to Forbes, Robertson’s return on his $200-million personal trading account was 150 percent.


Fortune interviewed Julian Robertson in early 2008 and it’s a good piece of article that gives history and definition of Tiger Cubs and Tiger Seeds.

Robertson has for years had a well-deserved reputation for spotting and developing talent. During his glory years managing the Tiger fund, the North Carolina native surrounded himself with bright, highly competitive, young men - often from southern universities - and worked them hard for their best ideas. Known as the “Tiger Cubs,” a number of them graduated and became extremely successful hedge fund managers in their own right, including John Griffin of Blue Ridge Capital, Lee Ainslie of Maverick Capital, Andreas Halvorsen of Viking Global, and Steve Mandel of Lone Pine Capital.

……

There was a new generation of talent in place at Tiger when Robertson unwound the fund in 2000, and he decided to give some start-up money to a handful of the sharpest analysts on staff and mentor them. These were the first “Tiger Seeds,” as he calls the money managers currently affiliated with the firm.

The former employees of Tiger Management who left the mothership and set hedge funds on their own, often are called “Tiger Cubs”. Another group of former employees of Tiger Management, after year 2000, set up hedge funds with seeding money from Julian Robertson, are called “Tiger Seeds”. There are various Tiger Cubs and Tiger Seeds lists on the web. One of them is from Opalesque, with 32 “Tiger Cubs” and 38 “Tiger Seeds” supplied by Tiger Management. Another one is from Hunter at howtogetahedgefundjob.com. We at fundville.com combined the two lists and did our own research and came out with our ultimate “Tiger Club” list and links to member’s 13F portfolio.

  2. [...] Julian Robertson’s Tigers, under the “rigorous” training of Wall Street with fear and greed, have lost wildness and become typical civilized Americans. They love “Apple” (AAPL), like to “Google” (GOOG), drink “Pepsi” (PEP) all the time, eat “Monsanto” (MON) gene modified pop corns, watch TV from “DirecTV” (DTV) and enjoy shopping with credit cards from “Visa” (V) and “MasterCard” (MA). They all live in big houses (IYR) and bank at the Chase (JPM). Once in a while, they bid expensive stuff from EBay (EBAY). Well, that’s basically the 10 most popular stocks held by 38 Tiger Club members, all are acclaimed successful hedge fund managers. [...]
