3i Private equity team changes
19 June 2013
3i announces that Fredrik Karlsson and Mattias Eklund will become co-heads of
3i's Nordic team from 1 July. Tomas Ekman will be leaving 3i following the
successful completion of the disposal of Xellia. This management change is the
final step in restructuring 3i's Nordic team down from a four partner group to
a two partner group in line with 3i's strategic review.
3i also confirms that David Whileman has resigned and will be leaving the group
to join a smaller private equity organisation with a focus on minority
investing. David's background has been in growth capital investing.
Over the last 12 months, 3i has restructured its Private Equity team with the
aim of creating a team better aligned with the market opportunity across
Northern Europe, North America and Brazil and a more manageable portfolio of
investments. The Private Equity team now comprises 17 partners and there has
been one unplanned partner resignation during this period.
Over the last 12 months, the performance of the Private Equity team has been
very strong with a gross portfolio return of 19.7% and realisations of £575m at
a realised profit of £190m over opening book value in the year to 31 March
