Mexico’s Actinver raises $62.3m for new private equity fund


mexicoMexican investment firm Corporación Actinver has secured $62.3m for its new private equity fund.

The fund will acquire minority stakes in Mexican companies with a holding period of between three and five years, Actinver managing director Guillermo Rodriguez told Bloomberg.

Actinver will focus on the retail, healthcare and logistics sectors in Mexico.

Earlier this year asset management firm PineBridge Investments  invested in five private market vehicles via its Mexico-focused fund Certificados de Capital de Desarrollo (CKD I).

The firm said the initial investment represent around half of the $209m capital commitments to CKD I.

Recent private equity deals in the country include Carlyle Mexico spinout EMX Capital’s MXN370m ($28m) investment in pharmaceutical company Farmapiel.

The investment was made alongside healthcare-focused entrepreneur and executive Ricardo Spinola.
