High Net Worth Investor Network Welcomes 250th MemberTIGER 21, the peer-to-peer learning network for high net worth investors, has welcomed its 250th member while hitting the $25 billion mark in terms of total member assets.Founded in 1999 with an initial roster of New York-based investors, Tiger 21 – an acronym for The Investment Group for Enhanced Results in the 21st Century – now has groups in 16 cities in the US and Canada.
