$6BN HEDGE FUND CLOSING DOWN – U.S. hedge fund Blue Ridge Capital, which is run by @John Griffin and currently manages a total of $6bn, is closing its doors. The hedge fund was launched in 1996 with $55mn, and peaked during its 13 year life span in 2013 when it reached $9bn, at the time making Griffin one of the best performing stock manages as they published 25% annualized returns. Mr. Griffin told clients he expects to complete the businesses wind-down in the first quarter of 2018, and plans to start “a new chapter” but is yet to elaborate on those plans. #SpartanInternational
