Shunwei Capital Partners raises $525m fund


chinaaaBeijing-based venture capital firm Shunwei Capital Partners has reportedly beaten the target for its latest fund.

The fund has held a final close on $525m, beating its $500m target, Shunwei CEO Tuck Lye Koh told Dow Jones.

Many LPs from the firm’s first fund backed the second vehicle, said Koh.

The fund will invest in China-based early-stage internet and technology businesses.

Shunwei is currently investing from a $200m fund targeting China’s internet industry, including mobile internet, e-commerce and social networks.

In April this year AltAssets reported that the firm was looking to raise $315m for its Internet Fund II and $210m for a Shunwei China Internet Opportunity Fund.
