EBRD has made an equity commitment of EUR 25 million to Polish Enterprise Fund VIII (the "Fund").
The Fund will make equity and quasi-equity investments primarily in medium-sized companies in the countries of Central and Southeast Europe, with a primary focus on Poland.
The Fund will provide: (i) a vehicle for investors to access the private equity asset class in the region; and (ii) equity and quasi-equity capital, directly and indirectly, to companies in the region.
The transition impact of the Fund will primarily be generated by contributing to increasing the availability of private equity financing in the region which can help promote private and entrepreneurial initiatives.
