China’s CDH Investments raises $2.55bn for Fund V


China-focused private equity firm CDH Investments has raised $2.55bn for its fifth buyout fund, PEI has reported.

Last month the firm was said to be on its way to exceeding its $2.5bn hard cap, while in September 2013, it was reported to be eyeing a final closing at the close of January.

CDH V will be used to target investments in both growth equity and buyout deals in healthcare, consumer and financial services sectors. The firm recently inked a deal with US buyout group KKR to invest in two large dairy farms.

CDH invests across private equity, venture capital, real estate and public equity markets, with $7bn under management – $4bn of which is in private equity. Last year the firm raised $31.5m towards its latest venture capital-focused vehicle, which is expecting to pull in between $300m and $350m.
