RoundShield Third European Special Opportunities Fund’s €500 Million Fundraising


Fried Frank advised RoundShield Partners LLP (“RoundShield”) on the successful raising of its third European special opportunities fund.

The fund was almost three times oversubscribed and closed at its hard cap of €500 million within three months of launch. RoundShield now advises approximately $1.4 billion across three funds and several co-investment vehicles. Commitments were made primarily by existing institutional investors from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe.

RoundShield is an independent investment firm focused on European asset-backed special opportunities.

The Fried Frank team was led by asset management partner Mark Mifsud (Picture), and included asset management associates James O’Shea and Robert MacVicar.
