Linzor Capital Partners (“Linzor”) is pleased to announce the final closing of its third fund, Linzor Capital Partners III, L.P. (“LCP III” or the “Fund”), held on May 14th with $621 million in aggregate capital commitments.
Continuing the successful investment strategy of its predecessor funds, LCP III will focus on middle market opportunities in Latin America, primarily in Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Argentina.
The capital raised for LCP III is largely composed of re-commitments from existing investors, with Linzor welcoming a select number of new limited partners into the Fund as well. LCP III has a globally diversified investor base, consisting of pension plans, asset managers, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, foundations and family offices. Approximately 40% of the capital was raised from the US, a third from Europe, and the rest from Latin America and Asia Pacific.
With the final closing of LCP III, Linzor has exceeded the initial target of capital commitments for the Fund and has reached its hard cap after less than six months in the market.
Monument Group served as placement agent and Latham & Watkins LLP served as fund formation counsel for LCP III.
