Pantheon hits $400m mark for latest co-investment fund


dollar envelope moneyInvestment firm Pantheon has raised more than $400m for its latest co-investment fund.

Pantheon Global Co-Investment Opportunities Fund II has received commitments totalling $402.2m from 11 LPs, according to a document filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The London-headquartered firm expects to close the fund before the end of the year, said Dow Jones, citing a person familiar with the matter. A source with knowledge of the matter said this was not far off, while a spokesman for Pantheon said he could not comment.

Pantheon’s co-investment programme is focused on buyout investments as well as on growth equity and special situations in the US, Europe and Asia.

It usually invests between $10m and $50m in cash-flow positive companies.

A separate filing showed that another private equity fund managed by Pantheon, USA Small Funds Program IX, has raised $52.8m from one investor.

In March this year Pantheon received a “substantial” allocation of new capital for a private equity programme it manages for the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF).
