Gary Townsend is starting a new hedge fund after winding down Maryland-based Hill-Townsend Capital.

Bloomberg reported that Townsend plans to raise $100 million in capital in the next three years for GBT Capital Management, which will invest in financial firms, as well as the European and Japanese markets.  Hill-Townsend, the long/short hedge fund Townsend launched with Vernon Hill in 2007, liquidated earlier last year after the pair decided to go their separate ways.
