Weil advised Oakley Capital, a leading pan-European private equity investor, on the “one and done” closing of Oakley Capital Origin Fund II at its hard cap of €750 million.
Building on the success of Origin I, Oakley’s first fund dedicated to the lower mid-market, Origin II received strong demand from institutional investors. Origin Fund II reached its hard cap of €750m in four months, and will pursue the same strategy as its predecessor fund, investing in tech-enabled businesses with enterprise values of up to €200m.
The Weil team was led by Private Funds Partner James Sargent. The team also included James Bromley, Aron Joy, Marc Schubert, Peter Boulle, Ornella Bergonzi Martinez, Abdul Wahaab Din, Mark Aitken, Oli Rosshandler and Julia Smith.
