A protégé of Julian Robertson and Paul Tudor Jones, Dwight Anderson runs the hedge fund Ospraie Management LLC. One of the highest profile "junior tigers" working on Wall Street, his fund was been particularly hard hit by the global financial crisis and he was forced to close down his main commodities fund. He's since attempted to bounce bank by raising $100 million to start up two new funds.
