Chase Coleman and his Tiger Global hedge fund added positions in PayPal and Alphabet and raised their position in Slack last quarter, continuing a history of big bets on technology companies.
Coleman is a protégé of legendary investor Julian Robertson, who closed his Tiger Management fund in 2000 and gave Coleman $25 million to strike out on his own.
Coleman has made his name as a growth investor, specifically with tech stocks. The fund, which also has a large private equity company, gained 33% last year and its total assets have grown by 80% since May 2015, according to Bloomberg.
Tiger Global has positions in six public companies that are valued at more than $1 billion, according to a securities filing released Friday.
