Milford Asset Management has always been intensely interested in private equity because of its potential to deliver superior returns for clients.
The Milford Active Growth Fund has been successfully investing in private companies since 2011. These private company investments have contributed positively to the Active Growth Fund over that time.
Milford will build on our private company investment expertise by launching the new Milford Private Equity Fund II.
The Fund will focus on investing in private companies with high growth opportunities and a desire to list on the share market over time. The Fund may also invest in under appreciated subsidiaries of corporations, turnaround opportunities and provide a succession route for founders.
Milford believes there are significant opportunities available for the Private Equity Fund II to deliver superior returns for investors over time, but notes that the Fund is only suitable for wholesale or eligible investors with a higher risk appetite who are willing to forgo liquidity in the quest for potentially higher returns.
Please note that the Milford Private Equity Fund II is now closed to new investment.
