Schroder Adveq reports strong fundraising in H1 2018

Schroder Adveq reports a successful H1 2018 driven by strong investment results, robust distribution levels to clients across strategies as well as increased investor demand for the firm’s specialized primary, secondary and direct-/co-investment offerings.

By July 2018, the firm had been entrusted with more than USD 1bn in new client commitments from investors such as pension funds, insurance companies and family offices across the world. Around half of these new commitments have been secured for separate accounts, reflecting the growing investor demand for customized solutions in private equity investing. Schroder Adveq now reports more than USD 9.5bn in overall client commitments as of 30 June 2018. 

The first half of 2018 also saw launches of new funds for the firm’s long-standing buyout strategy in Europe and the US, respectively.

In addition to the fund launches, Schroder Adveq successfully closed its Secondaries III fund in April at EUR 271 million, exceeding its target fund size by 35%. The fund executes secondary transactions globally across a full range of investment segments, including buyout/turnaround, growth capital and venture capital. It benefits from Schroder Adveq’s strong presence as primary and direct/co-investor across all these segments.

Rainer Ender, Head of Private Equity at Schroders, said:

“I am delighted to report such a positive achievement for 2018. This is a testimony that our focus on fundamental and responsible value creation and subsequent delivery of a continued performance across our investment offerings has proven its worth to our clients. At Schroder Adveq we look forward to continuing to provide excellent investment opportunities to our investors.”
