May 21, 2014



Proventus Capital Partners is an leading credit investor and loan provider to midsized companies in need of capital for expansion, acquisition financing, restructurings and refinancing in Northern Europe. Proventus Capital Partners also conduct investments in the primary and secondary markets for high yield bonds.

“The market for direct lending, outside of the banking system or in combination with banks, is growing rapidly. In this segment, we aim to be a strategic financial partner to the companies we invest in, and not just a supplier of money, and to help them address funding needs that are not suitable for traditional sources of credit. Over time, the best return on our investments will come from assisting companies in making the most of their business opportunities,’’ says Daniel Sachs, CEO of Proventus Capital Partners.

Proventus Capital Partners was initially started in 2009 with EUR 216 million under management. In 2011 and 2012, Proventus Capital Partners II and IIB were established with total capital of SEK 7.4 billion. These funds are now fully invested.

In a first closing, the third fund Proventus Capital Partners III has raised SEK 8.8 billion. The fund will remain open for further investors until the end of the third quarter of 2014. In total, Proventus Capital Partners now has the equivalent of approximately EUR 2 billion in assets under management. Investors in Proventus Capital Partners III include pension funds, insurance companies, large foundations and companies from the Nordics as well as wider Europe.
