What's New In Investments, Funds? - Berenberg, Moonfare

The latest in funds and investment news from across the world.

German private bank Berenberg and digital private assets investment platform Moonfare have partnered to provide the bank’s clients with digital access to private equity funds.

Qualified individuals can use the Moonfare platform to enter private equity funds, with a minimum investment of €200,000 ($225.941). Moonfare’s investment committee, which consists of experts from the private equity industry, selects top-tier funds. From this selection of funds, Berenberg chooses the funds it deems to be the most promising and offers these to its customers. 

Berenberg is tapping into the continued strong appetite for private equity, an asset class that has offered superior returns to listed equities at a time of ultra-low/negative interest rates. However, the asset class has tended to be restricted to high net worth investors.

Like Berenberg, Moonfare is a German firm based in Berlin. 

“Historically, access to private equity funds was exclusive for institutional investors committing more than €10 million per fund. By allocating 25 per cent or more to alternative investments, this exclusive group boosted their portfolio returns over decades,” Dr Steffen Pauls, founder and CEO of Moonfare, said.
