BlackFin closes second fund on €400m hard-cap

BlackFin closed its BlackFin Financial Services Fund II with aggregate commitments from European institutional investors and family-offices in excess of €400 million
The firm’s strategy focuses on asset-light (as opposed to balance-sheet intensive) businesses in the financial services sector, across continental Europe. Businesses of interest to BlackFin include asset-management, institutional and retail brokerage, distribution of insurance and banking products, both digital and through traditional channels, payments, processing, debt management and collection, fund administration, business process outsourcing and financial technology.
BlackFin operates as an active and influential investor. In Fund I (closed in 2011), the BlackFin team has substantially transformed its portfolio companies by growing them organically, improving operating margins and also through an active buy and build strategy. Transactions have been completed in France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
BlackFin will pursue this same strategy in Fund II, keeping its focus on the lower mid-market segment of the financial services sector, and supporting successful management teams to take their businesses to the next level.
