India Value Fund Advisors (IVFA) is raising $700 million for Indium–V Fund. Indium has recently completed the first closing of $500 million of its fifth India-dedicated fund (Fund - V). Fund - V was launched in November 2014 and the final closing is expected in the next 90 days at a hard-cap of $700 million.
This capital will be raised from over 25 investors and is diversified with a mix of sovereign funds, pension funds and fund of funds from across the globe, stated an release from IVFA.
