Robeco Responsible Private Equity II
Robeco Private Equity has had a successful first closing of Euro 50 million on its Robeco Responsible Private Equity Fund II. Investors in the first close count established institutional investors from The Netherlands and Italy.
This fund of funds offers investors the opportunity to invest in a responsible manner in the overall or mainstream private equity markets. It will build upon Robeco's proven strategy of constructing a global portfolio of high quality private equity funds that are willing to subscribe to the Robeco Principles for Responsible Private Equity (the ‘Principles’).
These new Principles are an upgrade of the 2004 Responsible Entrepreneurship Guidelines that formed the basis of Robeco's first ESG-focused fund in 2004, Robeco Sustainable Private Equity. They will also provide a better direction and more alignment with more internationally accepted sets of responsible investment guidelines, in particular the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (‘UN PRI’). The Fund has a target size of EUR 250 million.
