Strong growth in Evli's alternative funds

30.01.2019

The past year was significant for Evli's alternative investment funds. During 2018, Evli founded two new real estate funds and a private equity fund investing in unlisted growth companies. In total, more than EUR 300 million of capital was raised in Evli's alternative investment funds in 2018. The team responsible of the alternative investment funds has also grown and is currently 12 people strong.

Ab Kelonia Placering Oy, a private equity fund investment company acquired in December, will bolster the development and supply of alternative investment funds. The acquisition adds strong expertise and a professional team, as well as an additional EUR 210 million in assets under management to Evli.

The funds presented below are open for new investments also in 2019.
