LGT Capital Partners closes debut impact fund at USD550m

LGT Capital Partners has held the final close of Crown Impact, its first impact-focused private equity investment fund, at USD550 million, significantly above its initial target size of USD 350 million due to strong investor demand and a growing investment opportunity set.

Crown Impact invests in highly impactful companies across three core impact themes: climate action, inclusive growth and healthcare. The fund focuses on co-investments alongside leading conventional and impact managers, complementing the portfolio with impact primary and secondary fund investments. In addition to rigorous investment due diligence, these opportunities are subject to an in-depth impact assessment, which includes their alignment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) and the underlying targets and indicators. 

The fund’s diversified investor base includes pension funds, insurance companies, endowments and family offices across Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
Crown Impact is an Article 9 fund under SFDR.
