The EBRD is considering an equity investment of up to EUR 50 million, but not exceeding 30 per cent of total aggregate capital commitments, to CapMan Russia II Fund (“CapMan II” or “Fund”), a private equity investment fund to be registered in Guernsey as a limited partnership.
CapMan II is the successor fund to CapMan Russia Fund and is managed by CapMan (Guernsey) Russia II GP Limited and advised by CapMan Private Equity Advisors Limited (“CapMan Russia team”), both members of the CapMan Group, a large Nordic private equity fund management platform with more than EUR 3bln of assets under management.
The Fund will take significant minority equity stakes, backing committed management teams across a variety of sectors in which either the CapMan Russia team or CapMan itself has experience.The Fund will aim to invest in companies that have considerable potential for growth, a dedicated management team with a proven track record, and a commitment to improve corporate governance and transparency.
The transition impact of the proposed project would come from the following areas:
(i) Market expansion, by increasing the availability of institutional quality long-term equity financing to small and medium sized enterprises in Russia.
(ii) Demonstration effect for raising and investing private equity funds with a focus on Russian regional small and medium sized enterprises.
(iii) Promotion and enhancement of high standards of corporate governance and integrity in the Fund and investee companies.
The Fund will be managed by CapMan (Guernsey) Russia II GP Limited, a Guernsey limited liability company (under establishment) owned by CapMan Plc.
The Bank will invest the lesser of EUR 50 million or 30% of aggregate commitments.
The target size of the Fund is EUR 175 million.
The Fund will be required to comply with EBRD Performance Requirements 2 (Labour and Working Conditions) and 9 (Financial Intermediaries) and implement the EBRD's Environmental and Social Procedures for Active Equity Investments. The Fund should ensure investee companies comply with national environmental, OHS, social and labour standards.
The Fund will be required to provide to EBRD annual reports on environmental and social matters and the implementation of Performance Requirements 2 and 9.

Text of the PIP
Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)
If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).
IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.
Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
