Apera Asset Management ("Apera"), a pan-European mid-market private debt investor, is pleased to announce the successful completion of the fundraising of Apera Private Debt Fund II ("Fund II") and associated vehicles, raising total investible capital of EUR1.27bn.

Apera's Private Debt strategy focuses on senior secured unitranche financings across Europe. The raised capital exceeds the initial target of EUR800m and reflects the quality of Apera's investment platform and performance in the provision of private credit across its core European geographies.

The efficient execution of Apera's strategy has been well-received, with strong support from existing and new investors, including pension funds, insurers and endowments from Europe and North America. Apera's progressive deployment across 49 investments has led to its assets under management reaching EUR2.2bn and Fund II has already committed a significant proportion of its capital.

Campbell Lutyens acted as global placement agent to Apera on the fundraise.
