(Reuters) - SVG Capital SVI.L said on Monday that it was in talks with a consortium that included Goldman Sachs (GS.N: Quote) and the Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board ("CPPIB"), confirming media reports about other bidders for the British private equity firm.

SVG Capital, which had spurned U.S. rival HarbourVest's $1.5 billion-bid since mid-September, said it was also in talks with a second consortium regarding sale of some of its assets.

SVG Capital said it would provide further updates on the discussions on Tuesday.
