Tiger Global is adding Rohit Iragavarapu, a partner at TCV Capital involved in deals such as Gitlab, Attentive, Toast, LegalZoom and Avetta, to its investment team, two sources familiar with the matter said.
Before joining TCV in 2019, Iragavarapu worked at TPG Global and Morgan Stanley, according to his Linkedin profile. He begins his role as an investor at Tiger Global in the coming weeks, sources said. Tiger Global declined to comment on Tuesday. Iragavarapu did not respond to a message on LinkedIn.
Iragavarapu’s arrival comes as the New York-based hedge fund is going through one of the most challenging periods in its two decades of existence. Tiger Global’s hedge fund has lost more than half its value this year. John Curtiuswho oversaw many of the firm’s SaaS deals, left last month.
