Bowside Capital holds final closing of Bowside Capital Fund II

Bowside Capital has held final closing of Bowside Capital Fund II, a fund specialising in the US private equity, small capitalisation market.

Bowside Capital invests in US private equity funds with less than USD100m in committed capital, makes secondary purchases of limited partner interests in funds that meet its target criteria, and co-invests with these small funds in direct transactions.

“When we launched our prior fund in 2009, much of the fundraising process involved educating investors on the merits of a strategy dedicated to this segment of private equity and the strengths of a hybrid vehicle rather than a fund dedicated to a single investment type. With Bowside II nearly three times the size of its predecessor, it is clear that investors now understand our value proposition and the investment opportunity,” says managing partner Christian Albert (pictured). “Additionally, it was encouraging to see that despite the challenging fundraising environment limited partners representing over 88 per cent of the outside capital of the first fund subscribed to Bowside II.”

Bowside Capital has already completed a number of investments from Bowside II and is actively seeking new secondary and co-investment opportunities.
