Announcing the Completion of the Investment in Femto Growth I L.P.
WM Partners Co., Ltd. (President: Yasuo TOKUNAGA, Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, “WM”) and Alternative Investment Capital Limited (President: Reijiro SAMURA, Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, “AIC”) announced that Japan Private Equity Opportunity 2021 Investment Limited Partnership (“JEPOF2021″), which jointly operated by WM as a general partner and AIC as its investment adviser, completed the investment in Femto Growth I LP (the “Fund”(1)). (1) The Fund was formed as a continuation fund for Femto Startup LLP and Femto Growth Capital L.P..
Continuation funds could be the solutions to the various needs of stakeholders, such as General Partners (“GPs”), Limited Partners (“LPs”), and Portfolio Companies, in the later stage of the Private Equity Funds (“PE Funds”). This is due to the fact that such fund schemes offer liquidation opportunities to existing LPs, in which GPs are able to transfer some of the assets in the existing fund to the continuation fund.
Through the operation of the JPEOF2021, WM and AIC have provided adequate liquidation opportunities to domestic investors and offered flexibility in fund management to fund managers of PE funds, thereby contributing to the further development of the domestic PE fund markets.
