9th March 2024 | Hong Kong

Leading private equity group EQT with $251 billion AUM (EUR 232 billion) has announced the close of $3.3 billion (EUR 3 billion) EQT Future Funds investing in 2 strategies climate & nature and health & wellbeing, with commitments from institutional investors, private wealth clients & family offices.  With the close of EQT Future Funds, EQT has raised $27 billion in 2024 including from the recently announced largest EQT fundraise for the 10th fund with $24 billion (EUR 22 billion) for EQT X.  Announcement: “EQT is pleased to share that EQT Future (or the “Fund”) has held its final close. The Fund raised EUR 3 billion (USD 3.3 billion) in total commitments, with total fee-generating commitments for the overall strategy, including co-investments, totaling EUR 3.6bn (USD 3.9 billion)1. The close brings the combined final closes by the EQT Private Equity platform in 2024 to more than EUR 25 billion (USD 27 billion) in total commitments.   An integrated part of EQT Private Equity, EQT Future backs robust and downside-protected business models in two thematic areas: Climate & Nature and Health & Wellbeing. By adding a tailored impact management and measurement toolbox and having a more flexible investment mandate, it aims to innovate on EQT’s proven approach and create long-term value in its portfolio. The Fund is Article 9 accredited and has innovated around ways to align sustainability with financial returns, linking carried interest to sustainability targets.   The Fund received commitments from investors across the Americas, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe and the Nordics. It has a diversified investor base, including forward-thinking institutional and private wealth clients, notably family offices, with a greater share of commitments coming from the latter segment compared to the EQT Private Equity flagship funds. The Fund is currently circa 40-45 percent invested across three high-quality, downside-protected companies, which all show strong underlying earnings growth and are realizing their impact potential: 1) Global pest-control service provider Anticimex offers a biocide-free digital solution, paving the way for a sustainable pest control industry and contributing to curbing biodiversity loss, 2) Bloom Fresh International develops innovative disease-resistant varieties of fruit, reducing the use of fungicides that have a negative impact on soil health, ecosystems and human health, while increasing the agricultural output and shelf life of the fruits, 3) Pioneering autoinjector developer SHL Medical enables advanced drug self-administration for greater patient autonomy, thereby reducing the burden on healthcare systems.  Management fees for the Fund are charged on invested capital during its full term. This means that management fees will be charged only as and when investments are made by the Fund. Co-investment figures included are invested capital that is fee and carry-paying.”

Simon Griffiths, Partner and Head of the EQT Future Advisory team: “That EQT has been able to introduce a new strategy and receive strong backing for EQT Future’s attractive downside-protected offering shows that investors are keen to see innovation within private markets. We’ve married EQT’s proven private equity approach with new impact thinking to invest in market leaders that can be grown over the longer term and that can potentially transform whole industries. This differentiates EQT Future from many other impact funds, which typically focus on venture and growth-stage opportunities. We have partnered with three businesses where the founders and management share our vision of driving more sustainable products and services, and the portfolio has already shown its resilience.”

Per Franzén, Head of Private Capital Europe & North America at EQT and Chairman of the EQT Private Equity Investment Committees, including EQT Future: “EQT Future is a perfect complement to our Equity strategy. Having a longer-hold mandate makes us an ideal partner to long-term owners, such as industrial families and entrepreneurs. It also enables us to acquire crown jewels and develop them to their fullest potential. As an integrated part of our Private Equity strategy, EQT Future makes us a smarter thematic investor. It enables us to select the right opportunities with a focus on sustainable long-term value creation, and makes us a better partner to our clients.”

The fundraise exceeded the target size of EUR 20 billion (USD 21.6 billion) and represents a near 40 percent increase on EQT IX, which closed at EUR 15.6 billion in April 2021. It also represents one of the largest private equity funds ever raised.  The Fund received commitments from a broad range of investors, including pension and sovereign wealth funds, asset managers, and the private wealth segment. The latter made up an increased share of the total commitments, on the back of EQT’s recent strategic drive to offer the segment increased access to EQT funds with the launch of EQT Nexus. Fund investors were based across the Americas, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe and the Nordics.  EQT X is the latest fund in the EQT Private Equity strategy. For thirty years, the strategy has invested in the Healthcare, Technology, Tech-enabled Services and Industrial Technology sectors in Europe and North America, and over that time it has delivered a realized gross multiple on invested capital of 2.7x. The Fund has announced seven investments since June 2022, starting with the acquisition of Envirotainer, the globally leading provider of mission-critical transport services to the biopharma industry. Other investments include advanced medical components supplier Zeus, accounts receivable automation leader Billtrust, and animal pharmaceutical business Dechra Pharmaceuticals.”  History of EQT – Inspired by the Wallenberg family’s philosophy of responsible ownership, Conni Jonsson received a mandate from the board of Investor AB to establish EQT in 1994 with the backing from Investor AB, AEA Investors and SEB. The following year, EQT’s first fund was launched, which targeted industrial companies in Sweden and its neighboring countries.  Below info below:

Per Franzén, Head of Private Capital Europe & North America at EQT & Chairman of the EQT Private Equity Investment Committees: “We remain focused on backing and futureproofing companies in attractive and resilient sectors, such as healthcare and technology, and have proven our ability to perform and return capital across cycles. We continue to invest in our sector expertise, sharpening our ownership model and developing our value-creation toolbox. Our thematic investment strategy and strong local presence are competitive advantages when sourcing opportunities, not least in a slower deal-making environment. EQT X is off to a strong start, having already announced four take-privates while offering substantial co-invest opportunities. We look forward to continuing to partner with our clients.”

Suzanne Donohoe, Chief Commercial Officer: “We would like to thank both our long-term and new clients for their support of EQT X. Around 70 percent of the commitments to the fund came from existing EQT IX investors, a testament to the long-term trust we have built together. We’re also grateful for the support from new clients, who recognized our 30-year track record of delivering strong and steady returns. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our partnerships for the next 30 years and beyond.”

 

EQT History – The idea of starting a private equity firm, rooted in the Wallenberg family’s traditions of responsible ownership, was born in 1993 during a dinner in Stockholm’s Old Town. At the table were Conni Jonsson, at the time working at Investor AB, and his CEO, Claes Dahlbäck.  Over the course of Sweden’s modern history, the Wallenberg family has been the main influencer of the country’s industrial, entrepreneurial and banking sphere, partly through its investment company Investor AB, founded in 1916.

Inspired by the Wallenberg family’s philosophy of responsible ownership, Conni Jonsson received a mandate from the board of Investor AB to establish EQT in 1994 with the backing from Investor AB, AEA Investors and SEB. The following year, EQT’s first fund was launched, which targeted industrial companies in Sweden and its neighboring countries.
