Golding Capital Partners has has held first close of its co-investment fund, Golding Buyout Co-Investment 2020, with capital commitments of €161 million. 

The asset manager for alternative investments has thus been able to place three quarters of the target volume of EUR200 million with investors – primarily pension funds and insurance companies – within just a few months. With its first dedicated buyout co-investment fund Golding is seamlessly following on from the fund-raising success of previous buyout products. At the beginning of the year “Golding Buyout 2018” held its final close with a record volume of EUR375 million.

“In spite of the general yield compression, we believe that we can still identify attractive investments for our investors. We are constructing a hand-picked portfolio of companies with sustainable growth – both organic and through buy-and-build strategies. One of our earlier investments has accelerated their growth strategy with our investment and is already involved in advanced discussions regarding a possible IPO, thus providing early proof of the attractiveness of our investment strategy,” says Daniel Boege, Partner and Head of Buyout at Golding.
