Rothschild & Co’s €1 Billion Fundraising

Willkie Farr & Gallagher advised Rothschild & Co on the deal.

Rothschild & Co completed the fundraising for FASO V. Specialized in the European small and mid-market, FASO V is the 16th fund raised above its expected target by Rothschild & Co’s Merchant Banking business over the last 10 years. This brings its total assets under management to approximately €13 billion across four strategies: corporate private equity; senior and junior credit; primary and secondary fund investing; and co-investments.

FASO V was oversubscribed receiving total capital commitments of €1 billion, materially above the initial target of €700 million. Investors represent a globally diversified group of institutions, corporations, international family offices and entrepreneurs.

Willkie deal team was led by partner Nathalie Duguay (Picture) with the assistance of associates Raphaël Bloch and Barbara Botbol.
