KWM advises GPF Capital on structuring its €300m third fund

The King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) Investment Funds team has advised private equity firm GPF Capital (GPF) on the structuring and closing of its third fund, GPF Capital III Partnership Fund, with a size of €300 million

This fund is primarily aimed at investing in small and medium sized Spanish companies. The investors in this new fund are Spanish, American and 14 Latin American family offices that had already participated in the GPF I and GPF II funds.

According to the firm, this new fund presents a more flexible strategy in terms of the maturity of the investment, which will not be limited to five years but may remain indefinitely in the shareholding companies. In addition, GPF may invest up to 20% of GPF III outside Spain through the international family offices present in its funds and GPF may also consider investments in the Real Estate sector, for which KWM has also coordinated the structuring work of the parallel fund GPF Capital III Real Estate Fund.

King & Wood Mallesons´ team has been led by Funds partner, Isabel Rodríguez (pictured), and assisted by partner Ildefonso Alier (pictured) and associates María de Orueta and Patricia Martínez.
