Van Lanschot raises 100,000,000 with introduction of Van Lanschot Egeria III Feeder Fund.
For many years, F. van Lanschot Bankiers N.V. (Van Lanschot) has had a close alliance with Egeria in the area of private equity. Egeria, an independent investment firm, was established in 1997 by Peter Visser (a former Board member of MeesPierson) and members of the Brenninkmeijer family. The Egeria team is made up of professionals with extensive and robust networks throughout the Netherlands. They focus on private equity investments in medium-sized Dutch enterprises.
Egeria's leading expertise as a private equity specialist is an excellent fit for the high-quality and exclusive services that Van Lanschot is proud to offer its clients. This successful alliance is now being further developed with the introduction of a new investment fund, the Van Lanschot Egeria III Feeder Fund.
The Van Lanschot Egeria III Feeder Fund invests into Egeria III, Egeria's latest private equity fund. Similar to its predecessors, Egeria III will invest in Dutch unlisted enterprises, which will use the fund's financial injections to foster growth, and to carry out projects and acquisitions. Egeria exclusively acquires majority interests. After investing in them, it takes an active advisory role in its participations, creating value for their shareholders and staff, as well as for their clients.
The Van Lanschot Egeria III Feeder Fund is available only to clients of Van Lanschot Bankiers and Van Lanschot Kempen. The fund targets top private wealth investors, the minimum subscription being 100,000. In total, 100,000,000 was available for subscription. The subscription deadline for the Van Lanschot Egeria III Feeder Fund was 4 July 2008. Given the extremely high level of interest from Van Lanschot's private clients, the available amount of 100,000,000 was allocated in full.
