Francisco Partners, a technology-focused private equity firm, is targeting more than $3 billion for its fifth buyout pool, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

The San Francisco-based firm is planning to start collecting money in the fourth quarter, said the people, who asked not to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly. It has yet to set a limit, known as a hard cap, for the pool, the people said.
