Funds that best position you to run your own shop?
The dream for many people on this forum (those who are actually passionate in investing), is to run their own shop. I've spoken to lots of people in this business, all of whom have mentioned 1. how much of a difference it makes if your boss is not a dick / yet is truly an incredible investor, 2. the importance of a small investment team where you can make an actual impact / yet fund has meaningful AUM. Granted you have potential and know what you're doing, and the fund performs, these 2 factors can maximize your career earnings by the time you're ready to launch. It's uncommon, but the narrative/goal is to make enough money (there was a thread on theforum about this, I think consensus was $15-20m) after working for 10-15 years at some fund, and then start off on your own. I personally think that the best funds for this (MM funds aside, and specifically focusing on L/S or event driven SMs) are obviously Tiger, , Viking, Pershing, but also think Soroban, Darsana, Altimeter, Dragoneer, D1, and Appaloosa. What are some other funds you guys think fit the bill?
