Ambienta raises €250m for new fund


?????Environmental-focused private equity firm Ambienta has reportedly held another interim close for its latest fund.

The Milan-headquartered firm has raised €250m for the fund, said Private Equity International.

In January this year the Ambienta II fund hit a €200.2m second close, a few months after holding a €147.2m first close.
