Alternative Investment Funds

The selection of alternative investment funds to choose from at Evli includes private equity, real estate, forest, private debt and infrastructure funds. Managing those funds is a 21-person team with over 20 years of experience, on average, in the field of alternative investments. This experience in managing private equity funds dates back to 2002 and for real estate funds to 2005, when the first real estate fund was established in Evli and Finland. Evli has nine alternative investment funds with total assets under management of approximately EUR one billion.

Why invest in alternative investment funds?

Alternative investments complement traditional investments and diversify risk. For the long-term investor in the current low-yield environment, alternative investments are an attractive source of returns.

For whom is an alternative investment fund suitable?

Due to long investment horizon and high level of risk, alternative investment funds are only suitable for professional investors and, depending on the product, for certain non-professional investors who are considered to have sufficient understanding of the fund and its investment activities.

Member of venture capital and private equity associations
