Isis Equity Partners, a U.K.-based lower middle-market private equity firm, has raised $489 million for its first fund as an independent firm. The Isis team committed a 1.5% of the total capital raised for the Isis IV Fund.

Like its predecessor, Isis IV will focus on the lower end of the mid-market, investing between £6 million (US$12.3 million) and £20 million (US$41 million) in companies with an enterprise value of between £15 million (US$30.8 million) and £75 million (US$153.9 million). The fund has already an investment in the healthcare sector.

“It is gratifying to have achieved our primary objective of a diversified global investor base for Isis IV, our first fully independent fund since the spin-out in 2005” from F&C Asset Management, said managing partner Wol Kolade. “We are delighted with the confidence that investors have shown in us.”
