“Tiger Cub” Lee Ainslie III is making a huge turnaround so far this year. Bloomberg News Katherine Burton reports that his ~$10 billion AUM long/short equity hedge fund Maverick Capital’s biggest fund was up 20% through July.

That’s a huge comeback compared to the flagship fund’s performance last year.  

In 2011, Ainslie’s flagship fund was down 14.85%, Reuters’ Katya Wachtel reported earlier this month.  

Ainslie, who previously worked at Julian Robertson’s Tiger Management, helped start Maverick back in 1993.
