Listed fund of funds SVG Capital boosts commitment to Permira V


London-listed fund of funds SVG Capital has upped its allocation to European buyout firm Permira’s latest fund to €125m, up from its original commitment of €100m.

The listed private equity vehicle said it saw “significant distribution” as Permira IV investments continue to be realised. Distributions of £65.7m were recorded in Q1, largely driven by the full realisation of ProSiebenSat, SVG said.

Its portfolio of private equity funds valued at £1.0bn. And while still dominated by investments made by Permira, SVG has also made commitments to the Cinven’s fifth fund, and Clayton, Dubilier & Rice IX.
