Capital Four raises €1 bn for the first close of its new Private Debt V – Senior Vintage

9 March 2023

Credit boutique Capital Four held the first close of its new Senior Private Debt vintage “Private Debt V – Senior” ahead of target at €1 bn within 6 months of fund raising.

The initial first close target for the vintage has been well exceeded with commitments from new and long-standing investors and capital being raised from insurance companies, endowments as well as pension funds. The fund follows the same cycle-tested and disciplined investment approach of Capital Four’s Senior Debt Strategy and has already started to deploy in Q1 2023. The fund focuses exclusively on 1st lien senior secured bilateral financings to companies located in the Nordics, DACH and BENELUX. It will focus on companies with an EBITDA of €10 – 20 million, which have a strong and resilient profile as well as competitive market positions. In addition, a large part of the loans included in the portfolio will be sustainability-linked, making Private Debt V – Senior compliant with EU SFDR Art. 8.

Sandro Näf, CEO and Founding Partner at Capital Four, says: “We would like to thank our investors for their trust. The successful first close of our next Senior Private Debt Fund reflects the strong performance of our Senior Debt Strategy through the multiple credit cycles and the attractive features of the lower middle market in the Nordics and Northern Europe. We are thrilled by the unique investment opportunities credit markets offer investors in private credit and we are looking at a strong pipeline.
