A young star has left Ole Andreas Halvorsen’s $44 billion Viking Global.

Divya Nettimi, who has worked for Viking since 2014 as an analyst and a portfolio manager, is no longer at the firm, according to sources. She joined the billionaire Halvorsen’s firm after getting her MBA from Harvard and four-year stint at Goldman Sachs, respectively, according to her LinkedIn.

She was named to Forbes’ 30-under-30 list for finance in 2016, alongside Robinhood cofounder Vlad Tenev and IEX cofounder Stan Feldman. Her short bio on the list notes that she focused on e-commerce and retail for the Tiger Cub, and helped manage Harvard Business School’s alpha fund while she was getting her MBA.

Insider was unable to determine where she is going or what she is doing next. Nettimi did not respond to requests for comment, while Viking Global declined to comment.

Similar to other Tiger Cubs, Viking’s staff is relatively small compared to the assets the firm runs. The manager has 43 employees in “investment advisory functions” out of 214 total employees, according to a regulatory filing from March.

The firm’s investment leadership has had some turnover in recent years, as former chief investment officer Dan Sundheim started his own fund, D1 Capital, in 2018, and then former co-chief investment officer Ben Jacobs launched Anomaly Capital in 2020.
