Global private equity firm Regent Capital has closed its latest global buyout fund — BCKP Limited – on the $7.2 billion hard cap, beating its $6 billion target.

Regent Capital declined to comment on fundraising.

The fund will follow the same strategy of predecessor funds, which looks for buyout and growth investments in companies that have international expansion potential.

Origination will continue to be led by the firm's five global sector teams – consumer, financial services, healthcare and industrials – with an emphasis on identifying proprietary opportunities.

Existing investors represent 72 percent of the investment in this fund, alongside new global LPs. 40 percent of those investors are located in the US, 30 percent were in Europe, 25 percent were from Asia.
