Strathclyde Pension commits £25m to Palatine’s Fund IV


Strathclyde Pension Fund has agreed to commit £25m to Palatine Private Equity’s fourth flagship investment fund.

The commitment was announced at the pension fund’s latest quarterly committee meeting last week.

The Manchester-headquartered buyout house registered Palatine Private Equity Fund IV in an SEC filing in August last year, with a £300m fundraising goal.

The lower middle market-focused firm hit a £220m hard cap for the Fund III back in 2015, after pulling in £150m for Fund II in 2013 and £100m for its debut fundraise in 2007.

The firm typically invests between £10 and £30m of capital per deal according to its website.

On 31st December 2019, the Scotland-based pension fund’s assets under management stood at £23.7bn.
