Let’s Take A Moment To Celebrate Ping Jiang

If you’ve checked out Bloomberg‘s “richest hedge funds” story today, you may have noticed a sidebar of the “top emerging-market hedge funds.” Number one on that list? Mr. Ping Jiang, founder of Ping Capital Management. Dealbreaker readers will not be surprised; we’ve been exclusively tracking the performance of Jiang all year and the returns have been consistently of the kick-ass variety. Still, it’s nice to see Jiang’s efforts recognized. Having said that, it’s not enough. That’s why today we want to present Ping with an award that reflects what he’s had to do to get to this place.

It’s the first annual Michael Vick Career Resurrection Award of Excellence and we’re proud to say Ping has earned this thing. Like Michael, Ping had been written off by his professional community as just another example of immense potential gone to waste. Both men had questionable lapses in judgment as it related to canines and whiteboard markers and both were punished accordingly. While the matter of Ping being let go of his job at SAC had less to do with female hormones than a drop in performance, once banished from the kingdom he was no longer viewed as a talented portfolio manager; like Vick, whose extracurricular activities with pups outshone his football skills, all people could think of when they looked at or thought about PJ was that he once made an underling pay the toll before putting on a trade.

Both Vick and Jiang could’ve said ‘fuck it’ and quit on their careers and lives, flushing their god-given abilities down the toilet. Instead, they took that absolute last chance proffered to them by Eagles and people with seed capital and said- I’ll show you, world. They took the opportunity and ran with it and while Ping’s comeback hasn’t yet been weighed in on by the president of the United States (or Tucker Carlson), it’s only a matter of time.

Ping couldn’t be with us today to accept this award, so in his place, I’d like you, the people, to offer some words of thanks or provide a few memorable lines for the speech he would’ve wanted to deliver.

    Whiteboard markers are preferable to the chalk he’s got in his new office. Just sayin’.

    • Guest says:

      like vick, he’s still a few months off from being trusted with the forbidden fruit (markers y doggies).

  3. CoveredLong says:

    It’s incredible what these two have accomplished. They’ve even managed to leverage their success into lucrative marketing campaigns.

    New branded product launches for 2011 include canine friendly Vicks Vapor Rub and a Ping putter with multiple integrated ball markers.

    Ping – any interest in a working partnership? Let’s meet in my office to discuss.

    Not since Phil Falcone rescued Lisa from a life of food stamps and 12 hrs/day of Univision on a 12″ B&W TV have I been so proud of someone in the financial industry. I think this should be the financial “feel good story” of the year.

    I just love seeing a chink in a klan robe holding a brother’s crack-house-gaurding pit bull. Now go out and do the right thing.

    I suspect that this is the only place on the interwebs where these two individuals are connected with each other.

    Ping Jiang, Michael Vick and Greece need to merge in order to survive.

    I am simple person. There is no need to send me medals, certificates or any fancy useless stuffs. A big box of markers will do.

    I’ve been doing this for the little whilst now. Yes, you mac needs to be constantly on for ti to perform, but get the job done it does. I live inside of a little cottage where it’s just me and my cat, but with this method I can use my android tablet and iphone wirelessly with out a router. As mentioned, also great for when you’re travelling. It amazes me how many hotels still do not possess a wireless connection, just an ethernet cable sticking away from the wall.
