These include Credit Suisse of New York; Key Capital Corp. of Cleveland, Ohio; Lexington Partners of New York; Liberty Mutual Insurance Company of Boston, Mass.; Macquarie Global Private Equity Fund of New South Wales, Australia; Montague Newhall Associates of Calif.; Pantheon Ventures of London and its affiliates; Paul Capital Partners of San Francisco, Calif.; Storebrand of Oslo, Norway and several others.
Bank of America continues to be the sole limited partner for Scale Venture Partners I, a $500 million fund based in Foster City, Calif.
Probitas Partners of San Francisco, Calif., served as placement agent for the fund.
