International law firm Clifford Chance has advised Three Hills Capital Partners (“THCP”) on their successful fundraise of Three Hills Capital Solutions IV (“THCS IV”) at its hard cap of just over €1 billion. This represents a significant uplift on THCS IV’s predecessor fund, Three Hills Capital Solutions III, which closed on €540 million in 2019.
THCP is a pioneer and leader in European structured capital, offering flexible financing solutions and value-add expertise to entrepreneur-led businesses, helping them achieve their next phase of growth. With over €2 billion of total assets under management, THCP is an established player in the space and one of the few truly pan-regional players in Europe, with an active portfolio and pipeline spanning eight countries. In addition to providing capital, THCP will continue to actively support its portfolio companies’ strategies, operations and ESG via its dedicated “Value Creation” operating team.
The team led by Kristof Meynaerts (partner, Luxembourg) advised THCP on the structuring, formation and fundraise of THCS IV, which has a broad investor base comprising both institutional and private wealth investors including public pension plans, foundations, insurance companies, consultants and sovereign wealth funds across Europe, North America and Asia.
Meynaerts was supported by Severina Käppeli (senior associate, Luxembourg) and Brecht Smeets (associate, Luxembourg).
