With offices around Europe, Access Capital Partners was established in 1998 to invest in a range of private assets across Europe.

Access is an independent private assets manager, which is majority owned by its management. The firm launched its first-generation fund of funds in 1999.

Since inception, Access has provided its clients with enhanced returns and reduced volatility for their private asset allocations. Access’ integrated expertise offers exposure to European Smaller Buy-outs and Infrastructure through primaries, secondaries, direct and co-investment funds and customised solutions.

Building on its local presence in France, United Kingdom, Germany, Benelux and Nordic Countries, the firm has gained extensive knowledge and coverage of these market segments. Each business line has a dedicated investment team, each of which is fully committed to integrating environmental, social and governance best practices into its investment strategies.

Access has consistently focused its investment philosophy on quality assets with sustainable growth, working alongside experienced and most respected partners, to help businesses with strong market positions, meaningful development potential and predictable, positive cash flows to grow.

Access is generally a top three investor in the buy-out primary underlying funds and seeks to obtain board seats, observer rights and/or other legal protections in order to control the value of its investments.
