Three months after the first closing, Novum Capital has closed its second institutional investment fund on 19 March 2020, at the hard cap of 150 million euros. All existing investors in the first fund, which closed in February 2017, had already increased their investment in the subsequent fund at its first closing on 9 December 2019 – subscribing 112 million euros in total. The new investors who committed to the fund in its final closing are US family offices and endowments as well as one of the wealthiest entrepreneurial families in Europe. Felix Homann, one of the partners at Novum Capital, says: “We are very pleased to have renowned investors helping us to realise the new Novum Capital fund. Their confidence in us encourages us to continue our successful portfolio strategy.”
