Wolfgang Müller, Partner at LGT Capital Partners, comments: "Institutional investors have shown an increasing interest in co-investments over the last few years, and with CCO II, they achieve exposure to a differentiated strategy. The fund, which was oversubscribed, focuses on co-investments in buyouts in Europe, the US and Asia, investing alongside high quality fund managers in the LGT Capital Partners network."
Ivan Vercoutere, Managing Partner at LGT Capital Partners, adds: "In making co-investments for our clients, we focus on opportunities with clear visibility on multiple sources of value creation, while ensuring strong downside protection. Our global network of relationships with private equity managers provides us with the quality and quantity of deal flow required to remain highly selective in investing. At the same time, we have built a reputa-tion as a reliable and valued partner to private equity managers in co-underwriting situations."
