Private Equity

Limited Partners

Our Limited Partners comprise leading international sovereign wealth funds, public and corporate pension funds, financial institutions, endowments and foundations.

We invest in mid-market companies operating across Europe and North America with an enterprise value up to €500m.

We specifically focus on situations where we can help a company to expand internationally, using 3i’s local office and contact networks.

We currently manage three third party private equity funds, all of which are closed to new investors, and we raise deal by deal co-investment for selected deals.
