A former Valiant Capital Management trader has raised $270 million for his new hedge fund, Think Investments.

Shashin Shah has garnered $148.4 million for the onshore version of Think's global-stock fund and $121.9 million for the offshore version, according to regulatory filings. Shah founded Think in San Francisco last summer, after leaving Valiant.

Think's CFO is Tom Glaser, who worked with Shah at hedge fund Ayer Capital.

Shah joined Valiant after working with that firm's founder, Chris Hansen, at John Griffin's Blue Ridge Capital. Prior to joining that firm, he worked at Morgan Stanley.
