Silicon Harbour Capital, an investment firm founded by ex-Carlyle Group’s China head, has closed its maiden Chinese yuan fund at nearly 1 billion yuan ($156.8 million), far exceeding the initial fundraising target despite challenges in raising first-time funds amid the pandemic hit.

Its investors also include family offices, enterprises, and entrepreneurs.
