Huron Capital Partners LLC is among a handful of private equity firms that have recently raised new generalist funds, going against the common wisdom of the last few years that generalist funds were waning. At $500 million, Huron Fund IV is the Detroit firm's biggest fund to date. Like Huron's previous funds, it will make control investments in lower middle-market companies.
The fundraising climate today is "tough overall," reports partner Gretchen Perkins. "But capital is available for funds that have delivered strong and consistent results."
