Report: Swedish PE firm EQT on track to raise €10.75B

Swedish private equity group EQT is poised to raise €10.75 billion from investors later in February, the Financial Times reported Feb. 16, citing "two people familiar with the fundraising."

The capital raise, which was 2x oversubscribed, is intended for investments mainly in Northern Europe but also in regions including the U.S. One source said EQT rejected substantial amounts of cash on offer from prospective investors.

The fundraising is 60% larger than the previous 2015 fund, marking the company's largest ever, according to the report. EQT that year raised €6.75 billion for its EQT VII fund.

EQT's current investment portfolio includes Nordic specialist mortgage provider BlueStep Bank AB, retailer Flying Tiger Copenhagen and Chinese pharmacy chain LaoBaiXing.
