Anthilia Capital teams up with Fondo Italiano d’Investimento
Italy’s Anthilia Capital Partners SGR has launched Anthilia BIR Parallel fund, a private debt fund subscribed by Fondo Italiano d’Investimento and managed by Anthilia.
The fund starts with an initial AUM of €30m and will support the already existing Anthilia Bond Impresa Territorio (BIT) by also targeting Italian SMEs business development projects.
Anthilia said the fund will be available for subscription in March and has invested in two projects.
Anthilia BIR Parallel fund is an alternative, closed-ended fund aimed at institutional investors, with an eight year duration.
The investments in the new fund are linked to those in Anthilia BIT following a co-investment agreement between the two funds.
Anthilia BIR will target firms with stable cash flows, good exports, solid and transparent governance as well as stable and credible management, with flexible cost structure.
The fund’s portfolio will mainly include debt instruments with a three to seven year expiry and a rating equal or above B+.
With this fund launch, Anthilia SGR reaches AUM of €212m in private debt funds, targeting a final AUM of 230m.
Giovanni Landi (pictured), senior partner at Anthilia, said the partnership with Fondo Italiano d’Investimento is an important step to grow the firm’s private debt capacity.
