As co-investor, AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA has committed up to EUR 160 million. Accordingly, total commitments available to invest amount to EUR 540 million.

Strategy

AURELIUS European Opportunities IV targets corporate carve-outs, platform build-ups and complex buy-out situations with EUR 100 million revenues or greater.
