May 20, 2019

LGT Capital Partners is pleased to announce the final close of Crown Co-investment Opportunities II plc (CCO II), its second dedicated co-investment fund, with total subscrip-tions of USD 1.3 billion. The program’s investor base consists of more than 40 institutions, including pension funds, insurance companies, and endowments in Europe, the United States, Latin America, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

Wolfgang Müller, Partner at LGT Capital Partners, comments: "Institutional investors have shown an increasing interest in co-investments over the last few years, and with CCO II, they achieve exposure to a differentiated strategy. The fund, which was oversubscribed, focuses on co-investments in buyouts in Europe, the US and Asia, investing alongside high quality fund managers in the LGT Capital Partners network."

Ivan Vercoutere, Managing Partner at LGT Capital Partners, adds: "In making co-investments for our clients, we focus on opportunities with clear visibility on multiple sources of value creation, while ensuring strong downside protection. Our global network of relationships with private equity managers provides us with the quality and quantity of deal flow required to remain highly selective in investing. At the same time, we have built a reputa-tion as a reliable and valued partner to private equity managers in co-underwriting situations."
