Tiger Cubs in San Francisco

Tiger Cubs have SF offices and they have moved into venture capital lately (makes sense since many have a technology focus).

Does anyone know if the San Francisco offices of funds like Coatue, Viking, Lone Pine are VC only or do they also run HF operations and have hedge fund professionals based out there as well?

Some also have separate SF and Silicon Valley offices so maybe there is a difference?  Not a pressing concern, but just curious if anyone knows.

Can't speak on the ones you listed. But plenty of public-only funds killing it in SF. Tiger cubs or not. Most have a tech-tilt tho understandably.

There are some truly stellar equity funds in SF (not necessarily cubs) that fly quite under the radar - listing below off the top in case curious -

Route One



SPO (shut in '19, but PM still runs his own money I believe)

A new launch that will be interesting to follow - Vetamer Capital, launched by ex-Lone Pine analyst who I believe will run a Tiger-esque public / private hybrid strategy.

Pretty interesting. You always hear about the big MM like Farallon? and Citadel in SF but there's understandably less info about SMs so its cool to learn about some other firms SB'd. 

Edit: Farallon is not a MM, got confused by the multi strategy approach and its allowance for managers to spin off separate entity funds that use Farallon back office and support but legally are different funds.
