Greenwich, CT | August 15, 2019 – Alvarez & Marsal Capital (“AMC”), a multi-strategy private equity investment firm with over $3 billion in total capital commitments across four funds and three investment strategies, announced today that its flagship investment strategy focused on middle-market control transactions in North American held the final closing on A&M Capital Partners Fund II (“AMCP II” or “Fund II”) at its hard cap of $1.2 billion, exceeding its original target of $800 million.

In total, the General Partner and its related entities committed approximately $90mm to AMCP II and comprise ~7.5% of it committed capital.
“We are extremely pleased with the outcome of AMCP II and are fortunate to count some of the largest and most sophisticated private equity investors as our partners. Existing investors from AMCP I significantly increased their commitments to Fund II and we are excited to add several new prestigious limited partners to our partnership” said Mike Odrich, Managing Partner & Founder of AMC. “AMCP II will provide us the capital we need to execute our investment strategy across the economic cycle. Fund II is off to a terrific start with three investment platforms that include eight companies.
