Cologne, Germany-based CAM Private Equity, a private equity fund-of-funds shop, has formed a joint venture with U.S.-based NewMarkets Partners, to form CAM NewMarkets Partners. The new entity this month launched CAM NewMarkets I, a p.e. fund of funds geared toward institutional investors focusing on the emerging p.e. markets outside of North America and Western Europe. The firm is looking to raise between $350 million to $450 million for the fund.
The generalist NewMarkets I will invest in 15 to 20 established mid-market buyout professionals, either raising or investing their second or third fund, according to Marie-France Mathes, a NewMarkets Partners co-founder. “The new fund will allow institutional investors the flexibility of investing globally, Asia-only or in the rest of the world,” Mathes said.
Mathes and co-founder Tomoko Tatara are alumni of International Finance Corp.’s p.e. and investment funds department. They’re teaming up with CAM executives Constantin von Dziembowski and Rolf Wickenkamp to serve on the new funds’ investment committee.
Mathes declined to comment on NewMarket I’s fee structure.
