Gilde Healthcare raises more than EUR500m for PE investments in European healthcare companies

Gilde Healthcare has raised EUR517 million towards the first and final close of Gilde Healthcare Private Equity IV (GHPE IV).

GHPE IV focuses on investments in profitable healthcare companies operating in the lower mid-market in Northwest Europe.

The fund concentrates on firms with an active buy-and-build strategy and invests in all sub-segments of the healthcare sector. These include companies in healthcare provision, service providers to the healthcare sector and medical industry, manufacturers of medical supplies and pharmaceutical companies. Market interest was strong and the new fund was oversubscribed, attracting institutional investors from the Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Italy, and Scandinavia.

In combination with its vintage 2020 transatlantic Venture&Growth fund V, Gilde Healthcare has raised EUR933 million (USD1.0 billion) in capital in less than two years. Since its foundation in 2006, Gilde Healthcare has made 70 platform investments, of which 46 have been sold or floated. A track record that places Gilde at the top of industry benchmarks.
