Three main strategies and their features

Risk capital

An investment that finances the start-up of new companies. This investment is high risk and its profitability is highly uncertain.

Growth capital

An investment that allows you to contribute to the development of companies that have a track record, and usually are already profitable.

Buy-out Capital

An investment in mature, growing companies that want to expand further, whereby existing shareholders are bought out by a private equity fund.

ABN AMRO Private Banking prefers investing in a buy-out structure, where the selected funds can have a real impact on the strategy of the companies in the portfolio. This does not mean, however, that we preclude offering ad hoc alternative solutions such as growth capital, if relevant in the current market context.

More information and conditions

What Private Equity options does ABN AMRO Private Banking offer?

Our open architecture gives us access to the best Private Equity funds. The open architecture at ABN AMRO Private Banking allows us to operate completely independently when selecting funds. We focus on funds that take majority stakes through buy-out strategies.

We also offer you advice, and ensure regular monitoring throughout the life of your investment.

What are the benefits of our pan-European approach?

ABN AMRO Private Banking belongs to the ABN AMRO Group, which is one of the biggest private banking players in Europe. By offering an integrated Private Equity approach for all our private clients in Europe, we have become an important partner for the largest Private Equity firms.

This additional dimension means that we can rely on sometimes exclusive but always sufficiently large allocations, delivering significant economies of scale to our clients. Thanks to our presence in a number of countries, over the last 20 years we have also been able to offer a more extensive and exclusive selection of Private Equity funds.

This approach gives us access to large cap funds normally reserved for institutional investors only.

How do we select Private Equity funds?

With 20 years of expertise, we have built up important relationships with prominent Private Equity management companies worldwide.

Our selection process is similar to that of large pension funds or insurance companies.

In an initial phase we focus on due diligence, which entails an in-depth analysis of the companies: what is their performance history, who are their key people, do they have stable teams and how successfully have they transitioned through various macroeconomic cycles? After this analysis phase, which typically lasts three to four weeks, there is a face-to-face meeting with the management and investment teams, the risk management teams and the support services to assess their solidity in person. The management company is then proposed to our pan-European Private Equity Investment Committee, who may or may not confirm the proposed option.

In what type of structure and geographical area do we recommend investing?

Our range is based on a long-term portfolio that is regulated in Europe by the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFM). Our offering includes a variety of specific regions, markets and strategies.

Who is our Private Equity offering for?

We offer our Private Equity to experienced individuals with a long-term investment horizon who are knowledgeable about Private Equity and about the industries we invest in and the associated risks.

You should only diversify a minority of your portfolio into this type of asset, and this may expose you to some clear risks such as liquidity, term, capital loss, exchange rate or other risks specifically related to the underlying companies.
