TPG Growth, the middle market and growth equity platform of Fort Worth and San Francisco-based investment firm TPG, announced Monday the closing of its fourth fund, TPG Growth IV. The fund reached $3.7 billion in commitments, putting the firm’s assets at over $3.7 billion, achieving its hard cap on LP commitments in four months, according to a news release. .

“We are long-term partners to entrepreneurs, founders, and management teams, working with them to build and scale their businesses,” said Bill McGlashan, founder and managing partner of TPG Growth and co-founder and CEO of The Rise Fund, a social impact fund. “We focus on key themes across different geographies and industries, utilizing a variety of financial structures, which enables us to be both disciplined and opportunistic. The close of TPG Growth IV is a testament to the strength of our strategy, collaborative culture, globally integrated approach, and commitment to growth and innovation.”

TPG Growth partners with companies in a range of sectors and geographies, from thriving consumer businesses in India such as Lenskart to global consumer brands such as Fender. TPG Growth has also co-founded innovative businesses—including enterprise artificial intelligence platform Noodle.ai and next-generation global media company STX Entertainment—in partnership with industry executives.
