Zurich, Switzerland, August 17, 2021

Mill Reef Capital is pleased to announce the final closing of its maiden fund at the hard cap of EUR 180 million.

Mill Reef Capital, a highly specialized secondary investor in private equity, is excited to announce the final closing of its maiden fund, Mill Reef Capital Fund SCS, at the hard cap of EUR 180 million. Mill Reef Capital’s investor base includes reputable institutional investors such as insurance companies, corporate and public pension plans and sophisticated family offices.

Nico Taverna, Founding Partner, commented «This is a considerable milestone for our company. The launch of our fund raising came at a globally uncertain time and was conducted largely remotely. The great outcome of our fund raise demonstrates the broad appeal to our investor base for our differentiated investment strategy.»

The fund specializes in smaller and more complex secondary transactions. Limited competition in this space allows Mill Reef Capital to target transactions with an attractive risk-return profile. The fund has already invested across differentiated and attractive secondary transactions, including providing liquidity to investors in funds and additional capital to fund managers; this includes preferred equity solutions for funds and portfolio companies as well as financing of single or multiple asset continuation vehicles for the most promising portfolio companies.

Gregor Hasler, Founding Partner, said «We are excited to continue investing in this attractive and underserved part of the secondaries market. In light of the anticipated significant growth of our target market and the ongoing adoption of innovative liquidity solutions on the smaller end of the secondaries market, we are further growing our team and platform in the coming months.»

Mill Reef Capital has been advised by placement agent Convero.
