Fund IV generated an average IRR of 23.85 percent and an average multiple of 1.64 x as of September 30, 2014, according to performance data provider Bison.

The firm invests in business-to-business and business-to-consumer sectors such as software, financial and healthcare technology, digital media, ecommerce and internet infrastructure.
