Munich Private Equity Partners (MPEP) is one of the leading private equity houses in Europe. The investment management company’s track record shows its ability to provide access to high-quality and outperforming fund managers. As of June 2020, 109 exited portfolio companies in the MPEP’s fund programs have generated 3.1x the invested capital on an average.
MPEP Fund III Program closed at €162M
MPEP has closed its third private equity program at €162 million with renowned international investors and this is higher than its original target of €100 million for MPEP Fund III. The private equity house intends to focus on the most sought-after fund managers in the mid-cap buyout segment in the established markets of Europe and North America.
With the relationship with its anchor investor, the mid-cap buyout specialist will be able to build up substantial parts of its fund portfolios before it begins active fundraising with institutional investors. As the potential investors get favourable visibility on the manager quality and expected portfolio composition, the blind pool risk associated with these investments is reduced.
David Schäfer, Managing Director of MPEP, said, “We partner with experienced managers who have consistently achieved above-average results in their history and who exhibit strong strategic and operational expertise.”
“At the final close of MPEP Fund III, 14 out of 20 targeted fund investments have already been completed and MPEP has a strong pipeline with several fund investments already in advanced stages of due diligence. “We are certainly not striving to create a private equity index. Our goal is to provide investors access to a focused, high-quality portfolio with adequate diversification, which can capture the outperformance potential of the best managers”, said Christopher Bär, Managing Director of MPEP.
