EM8 Private Equity team claims a management of conviction and has proved since 2005 its capacity to access and select the most performing Private Equity managers.
Our company commercializes Private Equity funds of funds that combine primary and secondary investments, mainly in Europe.
EM8 Private Equity endeavours to diversify its portfolio by supporting emerging and established managers, whatever the segment.
The funds of funds benefit from an allocation into technology funds since 2005. This strategy is quite original and requires specific skills and knowledges on numerous themes.
Concerning the primary investments, following an extensive due diligence, EM8 Private Equity selects buyout, capital growth and venture managers. These managers then invest into 8 to 30 underlying companies.
Concerning the secondary investments, EM8 Private Equity acquires stakes in buyout or technology funds already invested. This process allows to buy assets at an attractive price or having shorter holding periods that reduce the early downside of the J-curve. The strategy of supporting emerging managers for primary transactions can also create secondary opportunities later among a number of managers who are not very well-known yet .
The portfolios built by EM8 Private Equity enjoy a strong diversification by vintage, segment, industry, geography, underlying companies size, as well as by the funds managers experience and management style.
