Dedicated funds and mandates
We build customized and diversified portfolios to offer our investors privileged access to the best European mid-market private equity opportunities. They offer flexibility and transparency while minimizing risk, thus responding to each investor’s requirements. The result is a consistently superior private equity return.
Our dynamic approach to portfolio construction combines three types of strategies, selected for their risk return characteristics, investment duration and ESG considerations:
- Primary funds commitments: diversify management and country risk by investing in newly created funds (including buyout, growth capital and venture capital funds)
- Secondary transactions: accelerate capital returns and shorten investment duration by acquiring units in existing private equity funds or acquiring portfolios of selected companies
- Direct equity co-investments: enhance returns by selectively investing directly in a company’s equity alongside a private equity fund.
Our objective is to provide Limited and General Partners with a range of liquidity solutions on a fair, timely and confidential basis. We either invest in existing private equity funds or acquire portfolios of selected companies to accelerate capital returns and shorten investment duration. This practice relies on an experienced, multinational team that partners with Eurazeo’s foreign offices.
