Permira eyes imminent €5.3bn final close for Fund V


closed shut lockEuropean private equity firm Permira is reportedly set for a €5.3bn final close for its latest buyout fund in the next few days.

The fund is already a quarter invested according to PEI, which first reported the news.

AltAssets revealed in February that the firm has pulled in €5bn for Permira V, hitting its hard cap in the process.

It was thought at the time that the fund could end up at €5.3bn including the GP commitment.

Permira previously picked up a commitment from the University of Michigan, which allocated €15m towards its interim closing in April on €2.2bn.

The firm reduced the target to between €4bn and €5bn last year from the initial €6.5bn target.

Permira reportedly tried to attract LPs to the fund by offering a management fee discount for early investors, or those pledging more than €200m.
