Aureos Cap Markets EM Private Equity Funds

Jan 15 2008 | 1:39pm ET

Private equity firm Aureos Capital has held a first close on its Aureos Latin America Fund I at US$140 million, and is looking to hard-close the new offering at some US$300 million. The International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group, is investing up to US$20 million in the new vehicle.

The Fund will be formed as an Ontario limited partnership, and will have local investment teams based in Mexico, Central America and the Andean region, which will be the focus of the fund’s investment. It will seek equity and equity-related investments in high growth companies located in Central America and the Andean region. Its investment size is expected to range from US$2 million to US$10 million.

The firm is also currently raising a US$100 million Central Asia p.e. fund and this year will begin to market a new US$350 million pan-Africa fund.

Aureos Capital is a Mauritius-based global private equity fund manager, which focuses on small and medium enterprise investments in emerging markets. The firm was established in July 2001 as a joint venture between CDC Group, a U.K. government-owned fund of funds, and Norfund, the Norwegian investment fund for developing countries.
