Kingswood Capital Management (Kingswood), an operationally-focused lower-middle market private equity firm, has closed the Kingswood Capital Opportunities Fund I. The Fund was oversubscribed and closed at the hard cap with total commitments of USD230 million.

The Fund will seek to make value-oriented control buyouts and structured debt and equity investments in companies that are headquartered in North America and characterised by operational, transactional, and/or structural complexity where the Firm believes it can make a significant and positive impact by leveraging its operational and strategic expertise and relationships. Target companies for initial platform investments will typically have over USD100 million of revenue. The Fund will generally seek to invest from USD15 million to USD50 million per investment, but in certain circumstances may invest less than USD15 million and with the support of its limited partners, can invest up to USD100 million per investment.

Alex Wolf, Managing Partner of Kingswood, says: “We are in the midst of an extraordinary market environment that presents both challenges and opportunities, but our experienced team of investment professionals and operators are prepared to support existing portfolio companies and source new compelling investment opportunities.”
