King & Wood Mallesons advises Artá Capital on new private equity fund

Spanish private equity firm Artá Capital was advised by King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) on the structuring and first closing of its second private equity fund, Artá Deyá II, with commitments totalling €300 million.


Of the capital raised, 50 per cent was committed by Corporación Financiera Alba (Grupo March). Institutional investors and family offices provided the remaining 50 per cent.

The strategy for the new fund is to invest in medium-sized Iberian companies, predominantly family-owned firms, with a need to incorporate a financial shareholder to finance growth and prepare for future investments and acquisitions.

The KWM team was led by partner Isabel Rodríguez, and included senior associate Ildefonso Alier.
