dollar4_sqMid-market firm Kainos Capital reportedly expects to exceed the target for its debut fund by the end of the month.

The firm expects to hold a close of around or more than $450m for its first fund, said Dow Jones, citing people familiar with the fund.

The fund was initially targeting $400m and has a $500m hard cap, said the sources.

According to documents filed with US securities regulators, kainos has already secured $367.3m from 29 LPs. Earlier this year AltAssets reported that the $172bn Canada Pension Plan committed $138m to the Kainos Capital Partners fund.

Kainos, which was part of HM Capital Partners before its spinout in 2012, invests between $50m and $150m in food product manufacturers and other businesses in the household and personal care segments.

The Kainos team has invested more than $2bn across 40 deals in the food and consumer sector.
