The secondaries fund targeting retail investors is about $51m in size, including $11m invested in Insight Venture Partners’ funds.

Pomona Investment Fund, a closed-ended fund targeting retail investors, was $50.8 million in size, including nearly 41 percent invested in secondaries investments as of 30 June, according to a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission dated 28 August.

Of the $20.8 million secondaries exposure, more than half – $11.03 million – is invested in Insight Venture Partners funds. This includes a $3.2 million exposure to Insight Venture Partners VII, a $3 million exposure to Insight Venture Partners VIII and a $2.5 million exposure to Insight Venture Partners VI.

More than 59 percent of the fund is invested in a money market fund.
