Alantra buys another 24.5% of European fund of funds specialist Access Capital Partners


Private markets investment major Alantra has bought another 24.5% of fellow European asset manager Access Capital Partners.

The €24.5m deal comes four years after Alantra initially bought into Access, when it picked up an identically-sized stake for €19m.

through funds of funds, co-investment funds and customised client solutions.

Last year the firm raised €814m Access Capital Fund VIII Growth Buyout Europe fund-of-funds vehicle, one of the largest vehicles of its type in the region.
