(Reuters) – Hamilton Lane (NASDAQ:) raised $5.6 billion as part of its Hamilton Lane Secondary Fund VI, exceeding its initial target, the investment management company said late on Tuesday.

The fundraising, the biggest in the firm’s history, saw strong support from a diverse group of new and existing investors with the fund exceeding its $5 billion target, the company said in a statement.
