Shamrock Capital Advisors has held a final close on its Entertainment IP Fund at the $250 million target following eight months of fundraising. The vehicle, the first of its kind raised by Shamrock, will invest into buyout and growth opportunities within the entertainment industry.

Texas County and District Retirement System, Michigan State Employees' Retirement System and Michigan Department of Treasury all committed to the fund.
