Keeping the faith in Europe’s mid-market
The streets of Paris in July were mobbed, full of joy and delirium as its citizens celebrated a true French success story. Its band of victorious footballers had returned home from Russia with the World Cup in hand and were greeted wildly. In a quieter corner of the city, away from the party on the Champs-Élysées, one imagines a somewhat more reserved version of the celebrations taking place.
Vincent Levita and Bruno Candès, chief executive and partner respectively at InfraVia Capital Partners, were no doubt buoyed by the success of their compatriots. They, however, had their own milestone to celebrate. Final commitments were being signed off on the firm’s fourth fund, bringing InfraVia European Fund IV to a €2 billion close, about two years after its third fund closed on half the size.
