The Vancouver-based private equity firm manages assets of CAD 441 million and has around 12% of assets allocated to investments in private equity funds, while it invests the majority of its assets in direct private equity opportunities. Typically it commits up to CAD 20 million to each new fund.

Chrysalix Energy III reached a final close in May, raising USD 123 million in total, which was just short of its USD 150 million target. The fund will invest in early and mid-stage companies that focus on the clean technology sector in North America.

The fund, which has already made five underlying investments, attracted commitments from international investors including Netherlands-based Delta Lloyd Insurance, Finnish National Fund for Research and Development (Sitra), Fortum, and fund of funds managers PCG Asset Management and Credit Suisse Customized Fund Investment Group, amongst others.
