In brief: Access wins private equity impact fund of funds mandate

The programme will focus on Access's area of experience: small European buyout strategies.

Access Capital Partners, a longstanding Paris-headquartered fund of funds business, has won what it describes as “an ESG-focused private equity mandate” from German energy provider EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg, according to a press release. It did not disclose the size of the mandate.

The programme aims to build a portfolio of Article 8 and Article 9 funds “pursuing a dual objective of achieving attractive financial returns while creating lasting positive environmental and social impact”, the firm said.

The capital will be deployed through a “tailor-made evergreen structure” to “enable flexibility in the pricing and sizing of EnBW’s additional future contributions” and will focus on Access’s area of experience: small European buyout strategies.
