Private equity shop Fremont Partners is changing its name to Calera Capital. The move comes as Calera begins preparations to raise its fourth fund, Mark Williamson, a managing partner at the firm's Boston office, said on Wednesday, Feb. 21. Calera will soon close the investment cycle of its third fund, a $920 million vehicle. Founded in San Francisco in 1991, the firm originally named itself after its first institutional investor, the Fremont Group. But it has evolved into a pool of more than 30 limited partners. Calera is a type of limestone indigenous to Norther California that is used as a building material. Since its inception, the firm has generated internal rates of return of more than 40% and cash-on-cash returns of 3 times, Williamson said.
