Sequoia Capital has raised more than $1 billion for five new funds as the firm continues its push for venture investments in the U.S., Israel and China.Sequoia has raised $474.5 million for its fourteenth U.S. venture fund, $215.5 million for its fifth Israel venture fund and $349.5 million for its fourth China venture fund, according to regulatory filings.All three funds are within $50 million of their predecessors, which were raised in 2010 for the U.S and China and 2008 for Israel, according to VentureWire records. The Israel and China funds also have side or principals funds of $11.9 million and $20.5 million respectively.Sequoia signaled a year ago with regulatory filings that it was raising the five funds. The firm declined to comment.Sequoia is one of the largest venture firms in the world and is also one of the few firms in Silicon Valley that seems to have no trouble raising funds despite a decline in U.S. venture fundraising. The firm raised its first fund in 1974, according to VentureWire records, but began to diversify more over the last decade with separate seed funds, growth funds and funds for India, Israel, China and the U.S. Foreign investing is done by local teams.Last year, Sequoia also raised U.S. and global growth funds of $950 million and $700 million, respectively, and made administrative changes that make it easier for its limited partners to invest across multiple Sequoia funds.The firms latest move into China comes at a time when some other investors have suffered in that country. Venture capital fundraising in China slumped to a two-year low in the second quarter, and IPOs of Chinese companies are also down this year.
