Charles Payson Chase Coleman III (born June 1975)[2] is an American hedge fund manager and investor, and the founder of Tiger Global Management.[3]

Early life and education[edit]

Coleman grew up in Glen Head, Long Island.[4] His father, C. Payson Coleman Jr., born in 1950,[5] is a partner at the New York law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, and his mother, Kim Payson, owned an interior design firm.[6][7]

His grandfather, Charles Payson Coleman, who was managing partner of the New York law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell until his death in 1982, was married to Mimi C. Thompson (née Louise Stuyvesant Wainwright), a descendant of Peter Stuyvesant, the last Dutch Governor who surrendered New Amsterdam to the British.[8][9]

Coleman was educated at the Deerfield Academy.[4] He graduated from Williams College in 1997, where he was co-captain of the lacrosse team.[10]

Investment career[edit]

He started his career in 1997, working for Julian Robertson and his hedge fund, Tiger Management.[11] Coleman had grown up with Robertson’s son, Spencer, who lived close to Glen Head, in Locust Valley. In 2000, Robertson closed his fund, and entrusted Coleman with over $25 million to manage, making him one of the 30 or more so-called Tiger Cubs, fund managers who started their fund management careers with Tiger Management.[4] “I’ve known Chase since he was a young boy on Long Island and a good friend of my son Spencer,” [Julian] Robertson said.[12]

Coleman serves as partner of the investment firm he founded, Tiger Global Management. The hedge fund was an early investor in both Facebook and LinkedIn.[13][14]

On the Forbes 2019 list of the worlds billionaires, he was ranked #458 with a net worth of US$4.5 billion.[11] According to Business Insider, he was born into old money and has made a lot of new money as well.[15] According to Institutional Investor, he made an estimated $2.5 billion in 2020.[16]

Political and economic views[edit]

In 2012 Coleman donated US $30,800 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee and US $5,000 to Mitt Romneys presidential campaign.[4] He has also donated to Democratic candidates, including $10,000 to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, $4,950 to Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, and $2,700 to New York Senator Charles Schumer.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Coleman married Stephanie Ercklentz, the daughter of lawyer Enno Ercklentz Jr. and Mai Harrison and step-daughter of Ridgely W. Harrison Jr., at Bethesda-by-the-Sea, Palm Beach, Florida, in 2005.[7][17] She is a Wellesley College graduate who worked in investment banking for Merrill Lynch and Marketing and PR for Anne Klein and Vera Wang.[18] Ercklentz was featured in the film, Born Rich, a 2003 documentary about growing up in the worlds richest families.[19] Her mother, Mai Harrison (née Vilms), is the grand-niece of Jüri Vilms, a member of the Estonian Salvation Committee and leader of the Estonian Independence Movement.[20]

The couple resides in New York City with their 4 children .[19] In 2008, they bought an entire floor of a Fifth Avenue building from Veronica Hearst, the daughter-in-law of William Randolph Hearst, for US$36.5 million.[4]
