The fund of funds to be raised from Indian family offices will help back successful homegrown PE and VC funds

Multi-family office and advisory firm Waterfield Advisors is raising a $100 million fund of funds (FoF) from Indian family offices, which will back successful homegrown private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) funds.

A FoF is a pooled fund which invests capital in other funds, allowing its investors diversified access to fund managers, instead of directly investing in individual funds and managing them.
