BC Partners Falls Short of Target in Private Equity Fund Raise

  • Private equity group’s latest fund was meant to be its largest
  • Firm also gets co-investment commitments for future deals

BC Partners has fallen short of the original target for its latest multibillion-dollar fund, missing out on an otherwise buoyant period for buyout managers seeking fresh capital.

The London-based private equity firm raised about 5.3 billion euros ($6 billion) in committed capital from investors for its 11th flagship fund, according to people familiar with the matter. BC Partners had originally sought 8.5 billion euros in what was meant to be its largest fund to date, but struggled to convince some long-term backers to recommit, even after extending the fundraising by several months.
