From New York City:

Tiger Global Management raised about $2.2 billion for its latest venture capital fund, well short of a $6 billion target and its smallest fundraising haul in roughly a decade, according to people familiar with the matter. According to a report by Bloomberg, it marked the first time a Tiger venture pool attracted less cash than the one that preceded it. Tiger’s last fund of $12.7 billion was its largest ever.

Known as the Private Investment Partners (PIP) 16 fund, the article said that Tiger’s early expectation was to raise $8 billion for PIP 16, but the firm told investors in October 2022 that it was targeting $6 billion. By the following February, it revised that down again to $5 billion, as higher interest rates squeezed Silicon Valley start-ups and spooked investors, The Wall Street Journal reported. As of June, PIP 16 had gathered $2.06 billion.
