LIQUIDITY SOLUTIONS

Hold on to winners in  portfolio

Some great portfolio companies have a long way to go but are limited in their growth by capital constrained funds at the end of their term.

We work with fund managers to transfer one or several portfolio companies to a new fund vehicle. We ensure proper governance and management of any potential conflicts while management of the portfolio remains with the incumbent fund manager. Existing investors are presented a liquidity option while the fund manager continues to manage the portfolio to maximize value.

PRIMARY INVESTMENTS

While most investors can access funds managed by larger private capital managers, Mill Reef Capital focuses on the smaller end of the market across Europe and identifies fund managers with differentiated strategies and the potential to significantly outperform the relevant market segment. We believe in-depth market knowledge and analytical rigor to be paramount to successfully invest in this market segment.
