London, June 19, 2020 - Leading international law firm Proskauer has advised Priveq on the closing of its sixth fund, Priveq Investment VI, which closed at SEK 2.5 billion.
Priveq is a leading Nordic lower mid-market growth and buyout investor. The firm invests in companies operating in the consumer products and services, healthcare, information technology and software sectors. This latest fund was significantly oversubscribed with strong backing from existing investors and substantial interest from new European and North American institutional investors.
The fund’s investor base consists of a diversified group of Nordic, European and North American investors, including public and private pension funds, insurance companies, charitable foundations, endowments, public institutions, family offices and fund-of-funds.
Private Investment Funds partner Nigel van Zyl comments: ‘Raising a fund from launch to hard cap in three months with a single close in an unprecedented environment says everything about Priveq - their stellar track-record, compelling investment strategy and deep relationships with their investors. We are delighted to have been able to partner with Priveq and help them achieve this great milestone.’
The Proskauer team was led by Private Investment Funds partner Nigel van Zyl and associate Nick Rose, alongside associates Rob Newham and Se Young (Sisi) Kim. The team was assisted by partner Matt Pincus and associate Brianna Reed (US tax), special regulatory counsel Anthony Drenzek (US corporate) and senior counsel Adam Scoll (ERISA).
