It would make the first collaboration between a Korean financing holding name and a foreign private equity fund, according to experts.

Shinhan Financial Group will spearhead the design and portfolio allocation.

The two will launch $150 million in private equity fund maturing in 2035 and another $50 million one devoted to real estate and infrastructure investment.
