Goodwin Advises Latour Capital Management On The Fundraising Of Its Third Generation Of Funds.

The Goodwin Paris Private Equity Investment Fund team advised Latour Capital Management in relation to the fundraising of its third generation of funds for a total amount of more than 1 billion euros.

Investors are primarily pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions and funds-of-funds located in Europe, North America, Australia, Asia and in the Middle East.

Latour Capital III and its co-investment vehicles are pursuing the same investment strategy as the previous funds. Their approach is generalist, with a particular focus on the business services sector, and investments consisting of majority or minority stakes in companies located in France and in Europe with an enterprise value in excess of €200 million, for investment tickets between €30 million and €120 million (or beyond in case of co-investments).

Created in Paris in 2011, Latour Capital Management is a portfolio management company specialized in private equity and managed by two of its founders, Cédric Bannel and Philippe Leoni. Previously, Latour Capital Management raised €115 million in 2012 for Latour Capital I and €306 million in 2016 for Latour Capital II.

The Goodwin team was led by partner Sarah Michel and included Marie-Laure Bruneel.
