KWM on the launch of Miura Partners 150 million impact fund
King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) is advising Miura Partners on the launch of its first impact fund, with a target size of 150 million euro. This new vehicle is focused on investing in high-growth small-caps in Southern Europe whose purpose is to solve global challenges following United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
The fund is backed by some of Miura’s most relevant institutional and private investors, as well as new investors with a growing appetite in the impact space. Its strategy will be focused on, among other areas, healthcare, accessible nutrition, well-being and safety, employment, edtech, digital inclusion, clean energy, circular solutions, and next-gen agriculture.
The KWM team that advises Miura Partners on this new project is led by partner Isabel Rodríguez, with the collaboration of associates Adriana Ordoño, María de Orueta and Enrique Torné.
The fund is one of the first in Southern Europe to be classified as Article 9 of the Sustainability Disclosure Regulation for the financial services sector (SFDR).
Miura Partners is a leading private equity firm in Spain, headquartered in Barcelona. Since 2008 it has invested in more than 50 companies, with transactions valued at over €2 billion.
