Endless, LLP, whose head of investor relations is Lucia Villamor, raises a new fund – a fund that investment managers Niamh Buckley and Linda Nguyenova and investment executive Sian Williams will be involved in investing. The UK private equity firm closed its fifth fund with 400 million pounds.
Endless will use the fund to continue investing in UK mid-market opportunities. The firm was able to hit its target in 12 weeks through video calls and an on-line data room. The Endless team has made a 50 million commitment to the fund, making it the largest single investor. Over the last 15 years, Endless has raised nearly 1.4 billion pounds.
In a statement, Lucia said “the support for this fund has exceeded our expectations, especially given the current uncertainty and the challenges of having to run a virtual fundraising process. We are really proud of how our team stepped up to the challenge and need to give our investors a big thank you for the conviction they have shown in our strategy.”
Lucia has been with the firm since 2008. Niamh joined Endless this year, while Linda has been with the firm since 2018. Sian joined in 2017.
Endless has made more than 80 acquisitions since its creation.
