Moonfare targets EUR100m with second vintage of Buyout Portfolio

Moonfare, a digital investment platform for top-tier private markets funds, is launching a second vintage of its flagship Buyout Portfolio to build on the success of the portfolio franchise it launched in 2020.

 Moonfare Buyout Portfolio I, a core part of Moonfare’s efforts to put top private equity funds within reach of individual investors, closed in May oversubscribed and performed strongly across key metrics. The fund raised a total of EUR70 million, 40 per cent above its original EUR50 million target.
 
Investor capital will flow to nine underlying funds focused on the buyout space. The portfolio includes funds running leading buyout strategies like EQT IX, KKR Asian Fund IV, CD&R Fund XI and Genstar Fund X. The portfolio also includes more tactical additions, like Ares Corporate Opportunities Fund V and Alpinvest Co-Investment Fund VIII, along with a leading secondaries fund and leading US healthcare buyout fund.
 
“If you look at the fund managers in our first Moonfare Buyout Portfolio, you are looking at something like a private equity hall of fame,” says Moonfare founder and CEO Dr Steffen Pauls. “Connecting managers like these with individual investors – in a fully digital and diversified fashion, no less – is what Moonfare is all about.”
