Moonfare back with €100m-targeting Fund II, just a month after closing oversubscribed debut vehicle


Moonfare, a European investment firm specialising in helping individual investors access top private equity funds, has raced backed to fundraising just a month after closing its oversubscribed debut vehicle.

The Berlin-based investor reached €70m for Moonfare Buyout Portfolio I, 40% above its original target, and is now eyeing €100m for Fund II.

Moonfare said its Fund I portfolio includes major buyout funds such as EQT IX, KKR Asian Fund IV, CD&R Fund XI and Genstar Fund X.

It also include what Moonfare descibes as “more tactical additions” like Ares Corporate Opportunities Fund V and Alpinvest CoInvestment Fund VIII, along with an unnamed secondaries fund and US healthcare buyout fund.

Moonfare founder and CEO Steffen Pauls said, “Connecting managers like these with individual investors — in a fully digital and diversified fashion, no less — is what Moonfare is all about.

“We do not see anyone else in the market offering individual investors funds of this caliber  with minimums as low as ours.”

Moonfare Buyout Portfolio II is open to accredited Moonfare investors now and will continue fundraising through 2022 or until it is fully subscribed.
