Waterland Private Equity Investments closes its eighth institutional fund at EUR 2.5 billion

De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek advised Waterland Private Equity Investments on the set-up and closing of its eighth institutional fund, WPEF VIII, at EUR 2.5 billion.

Waterland Private Equity Investments closed its fund at the hard cap three months after its initial launch. WPEF VIII was considerably oversubscribed with demand significantly exceeding the fundraising target, attributable to continued strong support from existing investors combined with significant interest from new investors.

De Brauw was involved as Dutch regulatory and legal counsel.

Core team: Kees Groffen, Mariska Enzerink, Birgit Snijder-Kuipers and Daan Gieben.
