Euro Private Equity continues its development and signs new dedicated accounts for more than €300m.

Euro Private Equity (« Euro-PE ») experienced a successful first semester with the signing of new dedicated accounts for institutional investors (Pension funds and Foundations) in France and in Switzerland. “These new partnerships materialise the increased interests of these investors for Private Equity. They have chosen a trusted partner for institutional advises of high quality to gain access to top performing managers in Europe with flexible and tailor-made services”, said Eric Deram, Managing Partner of Euro-PE.

The new mandates will follow Euro-PE’s differentiated strategy, by integrating four essential criteria:

  • A diversified portfolio built with the best teams in Europe;
  • A focus on creating value through operations with limited financial leverage, a proven strategy that generates the best risk-adjusted long-term performance, across economic cycles;
  • A rigorous selection process “hands-on” managers able to support companies and their managements on a day-to-day basis;
  • A constant alignment of interest and a strict code of ethics.

Innovative niche solutions

During the second semester of 2017, Euro-PE will be back in the market to raise its second fund dedicated to secondary and co-investments in Europe. These two strategies complement each other perfectly to give investors shortened investment duration while maintaining an excellent risk-adjusted return, to dramatically reduces the J curve and to stay highly selective in an increasingly competitive market.
