Chennai-based private equity firm TVS Capital Funds has marked the first close of its third PE fund named TVS Shriram Growth Fund 3 at ₹832 crores.

The fund sponsored by TVS Group and the Shriram Group has exceeded its initial target corpus of ₹700 crores. It is now looking to target ₹1,200 crores for its final close, in a year.

With around 100 local investors participating in the first close, the average commitments stand at ₹7 crore. The sponsor group is investing more than ₹200 crores, while they have separately also committed up to ₹400 crore to co-invest.

“We prefer not to raise capital from foreign investors. We have a harmonious set of family offices and institutional investors who understand India well,” said Gopal Srinivasan, Managing Director, TVS Capital Funds, adding that the firm has raised around ₹500 crore from family offices and ultra high net-worth individuals (UHNI).

Some of the recurring investors for the fund include InfosysKris Gopalakrishnan and Krishnakumar Natrajan, among others.

The latest fund will be making its first investment in the financial services sector by December.

Led by Gopal Srinivasan, TVS Capital Funds has raised more than ₹2,000 crores across all its three funds. TVS Capital raised its first fund of ₹600 crore in 2009, followed by the second fund of ₹600 crore in 2012.

The fund will continue to invest in the sectors in which it has already invested in, counting on its strengths. The ticket sizes for the third fund will range from ₹100-150 crore, up from ₹65 crore in the second fund. The latest fund will focus largely on financial services and consumption themes such as food and lifestyle.

Some of TVS Capital’s investments include National Stock Exchange of India, Indian Energy Exchange, RBL Bank, City Union Bank, Wonderla Holidays, Nykaa, and MedPlus, among others.

Recently, Tiger Global closed its $3.75 billion to focus on tech investments in India, among other markets.

Earlier this month, Social Finance launched two India funds with a combined corpus of $2 billion. Iron Pillar marked the final close of its ₹660 crore maiden fund.
