FORTUNE -- Sequoia Capital, the venture capital firm known for its early investments in companies like Google (GOOG) and LinkedIn (LNKD), has raised nearly $1.1 billion for new funds that will back start-ups in the U.S., China and Israel.
Here's the breakdown, based on SEC filings disclosed today:
Sequoia also manages a $950 million growth equity fund raised late last year.
The dedicated fund strategy is a bit of a reversal for Sequoia, which in 2010 raised $1.3 billion for an umbrella vehicle that encompassed all geographies. Fortune originally reported on the new plan in May 2012, and Sequoia held first closes on the funds last September.
It's also worth noting that the U.S. fund may actually be a bit larger, as we have not yet seen a filing for the affiliated "principal's fund" -- which would include fund commitments from Sequoia's partners. The China and Israel figures do include such commitments.
UPDATE: Sequoia has now disclosed another $78 million in commitments for the U.S. fund, bringing the overall total to $1.15 billion.
