Shanghai – January 16, 2019 – Cooley advised ChrysCapital on the closing of its eighth fund at $850 million, which brought the India-focused private equity firm’s total assets under management to $4 billion. Partner Jordan Silber led the Cooley team advising ChrysCapital.

ChrysCapital has made more than 80 investments and has returned more than $5 billion to investors through 65+ exits. ChrysCapital’s marquee investors include institutions with a long-term horizon such as sovereign wealth funds, endowments, pension funds and fund of funds.
