Torqx successfully raises Fund II at hard cap of €230 million
Torqx Capital Partners (“Torqx” or “we”) are pleased to announce that we have successfully closed our new fund, Torqx Fund II (“the Fund” or “Fund II”). The Fund saw strong demand from existing investors looking to continue to support Torqx in realising exceptional returns, as well as from a few selected new investors. The first and final close took place on July 8th at a hard cap of €230 million after a swift two and a half month fundraising process. The Torqx team itself is one of the largest investors in the Fund. In combination with additional co-investment possibilities of our investors, the Fund provides Torqx with the means and flexibility to invest equity tickets broadly in the range of €10 million to €100 million.
Torqx partners with management teams and entrepreneurs to build better businesses. Fund II will further build on the proven and successful strategy of Fund I and focus on both growth- and value investments. In growth investments, Torqx partners with management teams and frequently also with founder-owners to accelerate momentum to profitably grow their business and become stronger market leaders. With value investments, Torqx focuses on corporate carve-outs, special situations and other complex situations, helping executives to improve profitability and realizing the full potential of their business. Torqx differentiates itself with its entrepreneurial approach and drive to truly invest in businesses rather than just acquiring them in order to build better businesses indeed. With a presence in the Netherlands and Belgium, Torqx will remain focused on companies headquartered in the Benelux.
We would like to thank our returning LP’s for their continued trust and provide a warm welcome to the few selected LP’s newly joining Fund II.
