Energy-focused investment firm Energy & Minerals Group (EMG) has secured more than $1.2bn for its third fund.
Energy & Minerals Group Fund III has received commitments of $1.21bn from 63 LPs, according to a document filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Credit Suisse is acting as a placement agent for the fund, which does not have a minimum commitment requirement, the filing showed.
The new vehicle follows EMG’s second fund, which was closed with commitments of $2.2bn in 2012.
The firm invests between $150m and $400m in companies in the energy and minerals sector.
Last year EMG teamed up with NYSE-listed natural gas developer MarkWest Energy Partners to launch a development joint venture.
The Utica Joint Venture is dedicated to the development of midstream infrastructure on behalf of natural gas producers operating throughout the liquids-rich Utica Shale formation in Ohio.
