NOT TO be outdone by hedge

May 8, 2014

NOT TO be outdone by hedge fund boss Guy Hands (who has just announced he's donating 2m towards the construction of Mansfield College, Oxford's new Love Lane Building) Sir Michael Hintze, chief exec of hedge fund CQS, has announced he's donating 5m to the Natural History Museum. Hintze (who received his sir-dom for services to the arts) is a regular donor, and the Hintze Family Charitable Foundation has also donated to Oxford previously - to the Centre for Astrophysical Surveys, to be exact. The Natural History Museum is to rename its main room Hintze Hall in honour of the CQS boss. Shall we expect tit for tat from Hands and Hintze? We're sure the Science Museum would love a couple of mil.
