Step inside Table Management, an obscure investment firm in New York, and something strange happens: you’re transported to the rarefied realm ofBill Ackman, the billionaire hedge fund manager.

Table, it turns out, is sort of a secret wrapped in mystery. From the same Manhattan skyscraper as Ackman’sPershing Square Capital Management, Table handles the personal finances of one client: the boss.

But a growing number of prominent hedge funders are also quietly cordoning off private enclaves for […] Read more
