The fund, based in San Francisco, surpassed the fundraising goal of $2.75 billion, and was raised in three months. Investors include public and private pension funds, foundation and endowments, insurance companies and high net-worth individuals. More than 80 percent of the fund's investors invested in previous funds.

Several private equity firms have raised funds recently, including Lexington Partners, which closed a secondaries fund with $10.1 billion earlier in April, and Sterling Partners, which closed a $200 million, education-focused fund, also in April.
