Marlin Equity Partners, a leading global investment firm, is pleased to announce the final closing of Marlin Heritage Europe II, L.P. (“Heritage Europe II” or the “Fund”), with €675 million of total capital commitments, more than double the size of its predecessor fund. The Fund successfully closed over its target with strong support from existing limited partners and significant interest from new global investors.

Heritage Europe II is a continuation of the investment strategy employed by Marlin for over 15 years and by its predecessor fund, Marlin Heritage Europe, L.P. The Fund will apply the same philosophy and process-driven approach to investing utilized by prior Marlin funds and will target investments in middle-market companies generally located in Europe, where the firm has been active since 2006 and formally established a London office in 2012. Consistent with Marlin’s historical focus, Heritage Europe II will seek to invest in sustainable, high potential companies that can benefit from the firm’s rich history of accelerating growth and scaling businesses, as well as its substantial operational resources. The Fund will continue to focus on industries where Marlin has developed extensive domain expertise, including software, technology, healthcare and tech-enabled business and financial services.

“Our ability to successfully raise more than twice the amount of capital of the prior fund further validates our standing and recognition as a leading firm in the region and value-add partner,” said David McGovern, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Marlin. “We are thankful for the support from our existing investor base and newest partners, and now look forward to continuing to execute our operationally-focused investment strategy to help companies build long-term value and deliver successful outcomes for our partners.”
