This new fund provides FTV flexibility to make control and significant minority equity investments, often as the first institutional investor, generally ranging from $30 to $200 million, that align with the objectives of company management teams to accelerate growth and expansion. With the close of FTV VII, FTV has raised $6.2 billion, invested over $4 billion in 130 portfolio companies and realized over $6 billion since the firm was founded in 1998.
