Tata Capital, part of steel-to-software conglomerate Tata Group, has raised USD 600 million for a private equity fund to invest in India, in what could be one of the largest debuts by a private equity fund targeting India.
Institutional investors from North America, Asia and the Middle East have invested in the fund, the company said.
The investors could also co-invest directly into portfolio companies alongside the fund on a mutually discretionary basis, it added.
Globally, first-time funds have secured about USD 4 billion in aggregate capital, according to London-based data service provider Preqin.
Twenty-eight first-time funds reached a final close in the first quarter of 2013, the lowest number in any quarter in the period 2008-2013, Preqin added.
