It has also reduced its stake in Chinese e-tailer JD.com by nearly 25 per cent and entirely dissolved its minority stake in Alibaba.

Amazon was Tiger Global's second-largest public holding, after it had picked up 2.44 million shares for about $1 billion in September last year. However, the hedge fund lost 22 per cent in the first three months of this year, as Amazon shares dipped by 12 per cent during the period.

Tiger Global which manages $20 billion in assets, deploys capital through two business - private equity and public equity funds. Amazon's investment was through the latter fund while the Flipkart investment was through the former. (SH)
