Akina - Your partner for private equity in Europe
Akina Group (Akina) offers European private equity funds focusing on investing into small and medium sized businesses through a Zurich based investment adviser and a Luxembourg based alternative investment fund manager. The firm offers a range of primary and secondary fund and direct investment programmes for an international clientele of institutional and qualified private investors. Akina targets segments of the European private equity market that are difficult to access or are inefficient. Akina believes these segments offer the greatest potential for superior returns, yet investors need support to exploit them. Akina provides just such support.
Since 1999, its programmes and mandates have attracted EUR 2.5 billion (USD 2.6 billion) from more than 100 qualified investors around the globe. Among them are world-leading pension funds, financial institutions, endowments and foundations, as well as family offices and private investors.
Akina’s entity in Zurich is an investment adviser registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and its Luxemburg entity is an alternative investment fund manager (AIFM) registered with the Luxembourg Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF).
Akina is a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
