From linkedin:

5 BX PE analysts 

5 APO associates 

2 BX associates 

1 Silverlake analyst, Silverlake associate, CD&R, Berkshire, Elliot

0 hires out of banking/consulting, but for those who didn't start at MF PE (which, somewhat surprisingly, is 50%+ of the team), they came from PJT RSSG (2?) and ~1 from each of GS/MS/JPM/3G

To answer your question, with MF PE taking the top 10-15 kids each year, its not crazy that a fund like Tiger is looking mostly at that pool of candidates. Otherwise, as someone else said, be a top associate at APO/BX/KKR if you want a shot.

Lol that's stupid talent comes in every firm. Would rather hire a non target with a 3.0 who is hungry than some stuck up Ivy League/PE guy

Funniest

If they're so hungry why tf do they have a 3.0, especially at a shit school, and arent in PE? They havent done anything to prove themselves. 

"Stuck up Ivy League/PE guy". Lmao, non-targets have such a chip on their shoulder. Who do they think their coworkers are going to be?

How did Tiger only manage to return 3% this past year given the accredited backgrounds of their employees? In a relatively nice market for tech too….

Eventually over time you'll learn that no matter you hire the Exeter -> H/S/W -> GS TMT -> MF PE guy, the market can always find a way to fuck you over every year.

The fund realizes that the current market is overvaluing in late-stage and there is tremendous opportunity in getting in late-stage, attracting more funding from other people who see the big name "Tiger Global", and making bank after IPO.  Worst case scenario they can sell some of their shares to other private investors after a few stages of funding.

this is kinda of a retarded question, but looking at their 13f do they invest in anything besides tech cuz they only have a few non-tech names?

Yeah, what a bunch of complete fucking losers. Riding beta all the way to consistent 8-digit annual paydays. Epic epic losers. Try working at TowerBrook or Reverence Capital and investing in a regional insurance MGO roll-up eeking out a 13% IRR. Now those guys… those guys fuck.

I don't think the TGM analysts and partners (other then the top 3 guys) are consistently seeing 8 figure annual paydays lol.

The top 2 guys aren't seeing consistent 8 figure paydays lol. They're seeing consistent 9 figure paydays

I mean it's common sense...no HF is paying analysts/less sr partners 8 figures consistently. Even if it's Tiger. Maybe last year some partners may have JUST broke 8 figures, but only because they were up 50%. Unless you have some anecdotal data pt

You have absolutely no clue what you're talking about and yet think making some stupidly uninformed assertion/rebuttals to fact and punctuating it with "I think" or "if you have an anecdote to suggest otherwise" adds any value whatsoever?

It's clear that your opinion on the matter has about the same insight as that of a random Uber driver.

You literally know nothing, lack even the basic intellect to form an education guess, and haven't yet learned when to listen instead of speak… yet you're going around claiming your obviously wrong opinion is common sense and others are adding no value.

To spell it out for you, my initial statement was correct. (1) They are consistently making 8-digit payouts; (2) You are an abject moron; (3) The Sun is hot.

Wow imagine asking this last year around the same time.  Everyone in comment section is just saying they are tech riders now haha.  Really shows you how some people follow funds like a cult and immediately disband after one bad year of performance.
