Paragon closes new € 1.2 billion fund

Paragon, a leading investment firm in German-speaking Europe, is pleased to announce the closing of its Paragon Fund IV (“P4”) with capital commitments of €1.2 billion.

P4 significantly exceeds its predecessor fund, which closed on €783 million in 2019. Including the new fund, Paragon has €2.4 billion of equity under management and approx. €1.5 billion of equity available for new investments.
The fund attracted significant commitments from existing investors as well as additional commitments from new investors across Europe, the US and Japan.
P4 will enable Paragon to further capitalise its position as a leading investment manager focusing on traditional and complex buyouts with enterprise values of up to €500 million. Paragon will continue to apply its proven investment strategy targeting investments in fundamentally attractive mid-sized businesses with significant strategic and operational development potential.
