EM8 Private Equity is a conviction manager. The team has proven since 2005 its capacity to access and select performing Private Equity managers.
The 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 in which they operate.
The funds of funds launched and managed by the EM8 Private Equity team since 2005 benefit from an allocation into buyout and technology funds
. This strategy is quite original and requires specific skills and expertise on numerous themes.
Concerning the primary investments, following a thorough due diligence process, EM8 Private Equity selects buyout, capital growth and venture managers. These funds then invest into 8 to 30 underlying companies located principally in Europe.
Regarding the secondary investments, EM8 Private Equity acquires stakes in buyout or technology funds already deployed. Secondary transactions allow to purchase private equity assets at an attractive price, or having a shorter holding period and earlier cash returns, which results in a muted “J Curve”.
The portfolios built by EM8 Private Equity enjoy a strong diversification by vintage, segment, industry, geography, underlying companies size, as well as by the experience and management styles of the fund managers.
