Activity description

With more than 40 years of experience investing in alternative assets, Sofina is a long-standing institutional Limited Partner with a global and diverse network.

 

As a long-term minded, evergreen investment holding, Sofina has been building relationships with General Partners (GPs) over decades, supporting them across fundraising cycles. In addition, our ability to introduce portfolio companies to relevant relationships within our large network, across different industries and geographies, makes Sofina a valuable partner. Finally, through our Sofina Growth strategy, we can support these GPs’ portfolio companies financially by investing in late-stage rounds.
