The other fund Asia Alternatives looks to have closed is AACP Korea Buyout Investors IV, which has raked in $5m.

As with the previously mentioned fund, it is not clear whether AACP Korea Buyout will look to raise more capital, but the SEC filing does not indicate it is looking for more.

There were two investors supporting the fundraise.

It is unclear what the investment strategies of either fund will be.

The firm focuses on China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, South East Asia, India and Australia.
