The fund closed in nine months despite challenging conditions. With a c100% re-up rate and increased GP commitment, Nordic Capital Fund XI is over 45% bigger than its predecessor large-cap fund (Nordic Capital Fund X), which raised €6.1 billion in October 2020.

Nordic Capital Fund XI saw strong demand from a diversified global base of new and returning blue-chip investors. Nordic Capital’s current portfolio companies have on average achieved 11% organic employment growth in 2021, an average 12% increase in annual sales, and a 15% increase in EBITDA per year since Nordic Capital’s inception.

Fund XI will continue to apply deep and specialist experience to its core sectors including Healthcare, Technology & Payments and Financial Services, and selectively, in Industrial & Business Services. Its mandate includes investment in mid to large companies within these sectors in Europe; and within Healthcare and Technology & Payments globally.
