Adveq AUM Reaches $7B On Banner 2016

Jan 18 2017 | 7:47pm ET

Swiss private equity manager Adveq has crested $7 billion in assets under management as of mid-January 2017, driven by a successful 2016 that included the closing of five new funds and the completion of twenty direct/co-investments globally.

The firm closed its sixth European buyout fund at €462 million, well above its target of €350 million, in early December. 

“Adveq has achieved this milestone by being consistent, focusing on fundamental and responsible value creation,” said Sven Lidén, managing director and CEO, in an email to FINalternatives. “ In 2016, we enjoyed one of our strongest fundraising years, successfully closed a number of funds and secured a good amount of direct/co-investment deals. We look forward to continue providing excellent investment opportunities to investors in 2017 and beyond.”

Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Zürich, Adveq specializes in global primary, secondary and direct/co-investment offerings for institutional investors such as pension funds, insurance companies, family offices and other financial institutions located in Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region. Aside from its headquarters in Switzerland, the company has offices in Frankfurt, London, Jersey, New York, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
