Tiger Global raises $1.5 billion

April 14, 2014: 3:53 PM ET

Chase Coleman's firm raises eighth fund for private tech companies.

140127152521-tiger-620xaFORTUNE -- Tiger Global has raised $1.5 billion for its eighth fund focused on high-growth technology startups, according to a regulatory filing.

This is basically the same amount of money that Tiger Global raised for its seventh fund back in 2012, which invested in such companies as Automattic, One Kings Lane, Warby Parker, Eventbrite, Flipkart, Redfin and Glassdoor. One big difference, however, is that today there are many more firms doing "Tiger-like" deals -- in terms of both stage and valuation.

Tiger Global declined comment.
