Spectrum Equity quickly blew past the target for its latest fund.

The growth equity firm has raised $951 million from 80 investors for Spectrum Equity VII, according to a July 3 SEC filing. Just last month it said it planned to raise $800 million.

The new filing shows the hard cap for Fund VII as $1 billion.

The managing directors of the Fund VII general partnership are Brion Applegate, William Collatos, Randy Henderson, Christopher Mitchell, Victor Parker Jr., James Quagliaroli and Benjamin Spero, according to the filing.
