Investors under AMUF to support European SMEs

Investors into the fund will include institutional stakeholders (insurance companies, pension funds) and sovereign wealth funds. As AMUF’s first private institutional investor, Cassa Forense committed to invest EUR 175m into European PE/VC funds via AMUF in December 2017.

Following the momentum created by the first agreement, ENPACL (Ente Nazionale di Previdenza e Assistenza per i Consulenti del Lavoro) signed a commitment of EUR 90m into the Growth Capital compartment of the AMUF at the end of March 2018.

EPPI (Ente Previdenziale dei Periti Industriali e dei Periti Industriali Laureati) committed EUR 80m into the AMUF in April 2018, hence becoming AMUF’s third private institutional investor. The commitment has been equally split among the three compartments.

In less than five months since the start of the marketing of AMUF, the fundraising effort stands now at EUR 345m.

Moreover, the Fund’s three compartments (Growth Capital, Technology-Venture Capital and Life Sciences-Venture Capital) are fully operational with several investments signed over the course of H1 2018.
