An aggressive collector of contemporary art, Daniel Loeb owns works by artists like Andy Warhol, Mike Kelley, and Cindy Sherman.
Daniel Loeb is a lifelong surfer and he named his fund Third Point after the legendary break at Malibu’s Surfrider Beach. He’s also loves yoga: His morning routine starts with a yoga session and he’s traveled to India to practice in an Asthanga yoga school. Apparently, he’s a Quentin Tarantino fan. For years, Loeb was thought to participate in online stock discussions under the name “Mr. Pink.” After panning a company on a message board that he’d also shorted, the company’s founders sued him.
A former swinging bachelor, in 2004, Daniel Loeb married Margaret Munzer Loeb, a former yoga teacher and social worker. The couple recently moved from a West Village townhouse to a 39th floor penthouse at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 15 Central Park West. The five-bedroom, 10,700-square-foot apartment—which cost $45 million and was created out of two separate condos—has 360-degree views, servant’s quarters, an expansive deck, and a library. Loeb enjoys chatting in the lobby with fellow financiers Sandy Weill , Lloyd Blankfein, and Dan Och. Daniel Loeb, his wife, Margret, and their miniature pinscher, Biggie, spend weekends together at a house in the Hamptons.
The hedge funder also owns a Gulfstream IV jet airplane.
Daniel Loeb’s great-aunt, Ruth Handler, was the creator of the Barbie doll and co-founded Mattel.
