Brookfield Asset Management Launches Its Fifth PE Fund
The asset manager more than doubles its predecessor fund.
The new Brookfield Capital Partners V reached total equity commitments of $9 billion, according to Brookfield Asset Management. The company released a statement this week outlining the goals of the private equity fund and its type of investors.
The firm cited strong investor demand that allowed it to outpace its planned $7 billion fundraising target. BCP V’s predecessor fund closed in 2016 with $4 billion of total capital commitments.

[We] look forward to continuing to prudently invest where we can bring our operating capabilities, global scale, and expertise…”
Finally, Brookfield Capital Partners V has committed approximately $2.5 billion to acquire businesses. It further seeks investments with high barriers to entry, low production costs, and the potential for enhanced cash flow generation. The list also includes an automotive battery business and a large private hospital operator in Australia.
