Amanda V East closed on 50 million euro

The private equity fund Amanda V East LP, which is managed by the private equity team of eQ Asset Management Ltd, has held a final close on 50 million euro. The fund invests in growth capital / buyout funds, which invest in small and midsized companies operating in Russia / CIS and Central / Eastern Europe (CEE) and Southeastern Europe (SEE). This is the second generation fund raised by the team for this region and like its predecessor, the fund will invest both in new funds being raised as well as acquiring secondary positions in existing funds.

”We are grateful for the support that more than 20 limited partners have shown us, despite this challenging fund raising environment. Our new fund strengthens our market position on the growing private equity markets in Russia and Eastern Europe. In total, we manage close to 200 million euros dedicated to this region, which makes us one of the most important institutional investors”, comments Staffan Jåfs, head of private equity.
The fund has already started its investment period and has made its first three commitments.
