Credit Suisse: Best Fundraising Firm – Fund of Funds

Fabian Shey, Head of Private & Alternative Markets for Products & Financing

We are incredibly pleased to win “Best Fundraising – Fund of Funds” for our “Credit Suisse Climate Innovation Fund” in recognition of our efforts in the private equity space, particularly to receive this award for a first-time, mission-driven impact strategy. Being able to raise over USD300 million to enable positive climate impact is a strong indicator of the importance of this topic to our client base. The exceptional response has exceeded our expectations when conceptualising an Impact Venture Fund of Funds. We continue to build the community around the fund, with ongoing engagement and reporting on the positive change and impact the investments achieve, and will continue to find innovative solutions for our clients.
