TCI founder denies purchase of north London mansions

Chris Hohn, the founder of The Children's Investment Fund, has denied he is the secretive hedge fund manager who has recently been snapping up beautiful properties in Belsize Park and Primrose Hill.

Some of my sources claimed Mr Hohn, who is well-known in the City for his aggressive style of shareholder activism, was behind the purchase of the Belsize Park property (see the picture below) in yesterday's Betaville post.

Other sources also claimed Mr Hohn, whose TCI fund has donated millions to charities, has also bought the Primrose Hill property (see the picture below) that featured on the blog earlier in the week.

However, when Betaville spoke to Mr Hohn earlier today he told me in a somewhat abrupt manner that: "I own no properties in the UK".

I guess the search for the mystery hedgie that has been buying these beautiful properties continues......or not.
