Genstar Capital has filed paperwork with the SEC for its ninth flagship buyout fund, barely a year and a half after the firm closed its previous fund in the series on $3.95 billion. While no target amount was indicated on the filing, recent history indicates the vehicle could be a major one: Each of Genstar's previous two buyouts funds were nearly twice the size of their predecessors.
That's just one indication of Genstar's growing prominence on the private equity scene. The past three years have also brought a boom in the firm's investment activity, with Genstar's buy-and-build strategy leading to 54 deals worth more than $7 billion in combined value during 2017.
