    Bond Lovers Should Run And Hide: Julian Robertson

    Julian Robertson, the billionaire founder of Tiger Management LLC, said there’s a bubble in bonds that will end “in a very bad way.” “Bonds are at ridiculous levels,” Robertson said today at the Bloomberg Markets Most Influential Summit in New York. “It’s a worldwide phenomenon that governments are buying bonds to keep their countries moving […]

    Who Does Julian Robertson Have To Screw To Get A Glass Of Wine Around Here?

    Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. had bok choy and purple cauliflower with his wild striped bass last night, and blueberries on toothpicks for dessert. At Lincoln Center’s Fall Gala, a healthful menu seemed designed to ensure long-lived donors. Julian Robertson’s search for wine proved challenging, as greetings kept him from the one area […]

    Romney Backers Might’ve Lost, But They’ve Got Each Other (And That’s A Lot)

    At the private air terminal at Logan Airport in Boston early Wednesday, men in unwrinkled suits sank into plush leather chairs as they waited to board Gulfstream jets, trading consolations over Mitt Romney’s loss the day before. “All I can say is the American people have spoken,” said Kenneth Langone, the founder of Home Depot […]

    On Second Thought, Some Republican Money Managers Don’t Really Like Partying on Tuesdays

    According to a report by Reuters, some Romney supporters in the financial community will be having a more enjoyable evening tonight than others. In one corner you have those who will be partying (Julian Robertson, Paul Singer, Anthony Scaramucci and other top Romney donors have been invited to attend a soirée at the Westin Boston; John Paulson is throwing a small get-together at his Upper East Side townhouse; and “less prominent Wall Street fundraisers will be gathering at Brinkley’s Station, a bar and restaurant” on East 60th Street that serves “a $23.75 lobster club sandwich and $12 Bloody Marys”). In the other you have those who will be spending the night punishing themselves and telling anyone who calls, “I don’t deserve to have fun.”

    Like Jason Ader, who told Reuters that although he was originally going to party his face off in Vegas, circa 7PM tonight you’ll find him pulling the lever at his polling station and telling his kids, through tears, “This is what it’s like to vote for a looooser.”

    Money manager Jason Ader, who gained prominence as a Wall Street gaming analyst and is backing Romney, had been planning to travel to Las Vegas for an election night “watch party” at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. But in the aftermath of Sandy, Ader says he has decided to stay home. The manager of Ader Investment Management, which provides funding to small hedge funds, “will vote and watch at home with my young kids and educate them about the process and the returns,” he said.

    And David Hinman who’s going to kick things off by swallowing the key to the fridge that houses his $21,000 bottle of 1928 Krug and then drawing the blinds shortly after nightfall and sleeping on the floor in a hair shirt.

    David Hinman, chief investment officer of SW Asset Management, a Newport Beach, California-based investment firm, said in an email: “100 percent Obama wins; no reason to party.”

    Julian Robertson Likes Mitt Romney So Much He’s Considering Letting The Governor Take Over The Number 1 Spot On Speed Dial

    A slot previously held by a certain Home Depot founder who’d better step his shit up next time he’s on CNBC.

    “I think people are getting to know the real Mitt Romney. I am thrilled that that is happening. He is really quite a guy. He is, in my opinion, intellectually and morally and managerially the man that is most qualified by far to be president of the United States. You’re having a guy this afternoon that is a great hero of mine, but Mitt Romney is even better than Ken Langone…I think the campaign is going good. I think Governor Romney is really getting the American people to see the real Romney. That is what we have needed all along. I wish his family would expose itself more…I’d like to see Mrs. Romney, I would like to see the boys out and all of that more.”

    Julian Robertson Made Mitt Romney An Offer He Could Refuse

    And did! (Next time think about throwing in a tutorial on not letting The Man make you his bitch and some tales from the crypt to sweeten the deal.)

    Not long after Mitt Romney dropped out of the presidential race in early 2008, a titan of New York finance, Julian H. Robertson, flew to Utah to deliver an eye-popping offer. He asked Mr. Romney to become chief executive of his hedge fund, Tiger Management, for an annual salary of about $30 million, plus investment profits, according to two people told of the discussions. For Mr. Romney, who had spent the previous decade in public life forgoing any paychecks, the position promised to catapult him back to the pinnacle of American business and into the ranks of the stratospherically rich. Several friends and relatives urged him to accept. “Let’s put it this way,” said Mr. Robertson. “He could have made a lot of money.” But Mr. Romney was uninterested.
