TA Associates, one of the world’s oldest and largest growth investment firms, is preparing to pitch its next flagship fund with the aim of collecting some $11bn, according to people familiar with the matter.
The firm, with U.S. offices in Boston and Menlo Park, California, is poised to bring the fund to market less than two years after amassing $8.5bn for its predecessor vehicle, TA XIII.
Back then TA XIII was oversubscribed and exceeded its original US $7.5 billion target.
TA Associates, which has invested in more than 500 firms across the globe, and has raised $33.5 billion in capital since its founding in 1968.
Recently they chose Ajit Nedungadi as its next CEO, part of a slew of promotions announced by the Boston-based private equity firm. Nedungadi has worked at TA Associates for 21 years and has been a managing partner alongside chairman Brian Conway since 2017. He is based in London, where he oversees the firm’s European strategy. TA Associates has also promoted Jason Mironov, Jeffrey Hadden and Tony Marsh to managing director.
