Private equity firm Trilantic Capital Partners has filed to raise $500m for an energy-focused fund.
Trilantic Energy Partners (North America) has yet to register its first commitment, according to a document filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Credit Suisse Securities and Magenta Capital Services are acting as placement agents for the fund, which has a minimum commitment requirement of $250,000.
Back in December Trilantic, which used to be part of Lehman Brothers, closed its first independent fund on $2.2bn.
Fund V North America managed to exceed its $2bn target and the size of the firm’s $1.9bn previous fund.
Trilantic is focused on acquiring controlling and significant minority stakes in North America and Europe, targeting the business services, consumer, energy, financial services and media and telecommunications sectors.
The firm currently has four private equity funds under management with total committed capital of $6bn.
