Global investment manager Neuberger Berman has announced the final close of its third global private equity co-investment fund. 

The company’s NB Strategic Co-Investment Partners III LP was oversubscribed, according to a statement. The fund closed on its hard cap of $1.5 billion and surpassed its target of $1.25 billion.

Approximately 30 institutional clients invested in the new vehicle, including public pension plans, foundations, corporate pension plans, and financial companies from Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America.

"We are delighted with client response to NB Strategic Co-Investment Partners III LP and their support for our investment approach of serving as a strategic partner to lead private equity firms,'' said David Stonberg, managing director and global co-head of private equity co-investments.
