Ventizz Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on small- and middle-market deals in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein, has closed its fourth fund with €455 million (US$653 million) in capital commitments. Credit Suisse served as placement agent.

Ventizz Capital Fund IV was backed by a blue-chip list of more than 30 global institutional investors ranging from funds of funds to banks and insurance companies. It focuses on well-established companies, typically with revenues of between €10 million (US$14.5 million) and €100 million (US$145.2 million), at a key inflection point in their growth path, according to the firm.

“We are extremely pleased with the level of support the fund received from both existing and new investors,” Helmut Vorndran, CEO of Ventizz Capital Partners Advisory, said. “We believe this reflects the strong platform since the inception of the first fund advised by Ventizz Capital Partners in 2000, the strength of Ventizz funds' portfolio and track record as well as the outstanding opportunity in German-speaking Europe today for an investor with the strategic focus of the Ventizz funds.”

St. Gallen, Switzerland- and Düsseldorf, Germany-based Ventizz Capital was established in 2000.
