Wealthy investors trust Paul Singer, Robert Zoellner, Kyle Bass and Israel Englander more than other hedge fund managers, according to a survey by Tiger 21, an investment club whose 180 members have $15 billion in assets under management, according to Reuters.
Norman Miller, Richard Dowdle, David Einhorn, Andreas Halvorsen and John Paulson were also on the list.
"Traditionally, the wealthy share stocks tips and the names of their favorite investment advisors in private, but occasionally a small group of very wealthy investors give outsiders a peek into what they like and where they invested," Reuters writes.
The survey notes that real estate was the group's favorite investment class, followed by stocks and hedge funds.
