China Life Insurance to buy $250 mln stake in TPG: Reuters

China Life Insurance Co Ltd will buy a $250 million stake in private equity fund TPG Capital, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Wednesday.

China Life will be a general partner in TPG, and the deal comes as the private equity firm raises a new global fund worth around $10 billion, the source said, declining to be identified because the matter is not public.

TPG and China Life declined to comment.

The Wall Street Journal earlier reported the deal.
