Coller Capital aims to raise $218 mln for first yuan secondaries fund
Coller Capital on Thursday said it aimed to raise 1.5 billion yuan ($218.12 million) for its first yuan-denominated fund that taps into China’s fledging secondaries market of interests in private equity funds and stakes in private firms.
The London-based private capital secondaries manager said it has completed the first close of the fund. It did not disclose the size.
Private equity funds typically begin investing after their first-close, when they have received an initial round of commitments from investors.
“We expect to deploy the full range of secondary capabilities in the RMB-denominated (yuan) market,” a Coller Capital media representative said.
These will include – but not be limited to – the acquisition of LP positions, GP-led secondaries, structured secondary transactions and direct secondaries, the spokesperson said, referring to different types of private equity secondaries investments.
The private equity secondaries market allows investors in private equity funds and private companies to make early exits to free their capital.
