“During the first half of this year the markets were favourable and in managing the assets entrusted to us we earned nearly EUR 65 million for clients at the group level. Due to good long-term investment results and our specialization, by the end of the reform of the pension system in Lithuania the number of people choosing the pension funds that we manage grew significantly,”said Darius Šulnis, the president of Invalda INVL.
The INVL Baltic Sea Growth Fund, after raising EUR 106 million in a successful first closing and becoming the largest private equity investment fund in the Baltics, has already made its first two investments and is now working on several other transactions.
“Prioritizing the interests of the clients who put their trust in us, we also seek to bring benefits to the companies and businesses we invest in. Thus, we are open and actively seek opportunities and projects that create value for all stakeholders and for the Baltic region,” Darius Šulnis said.
Revenues from asset management rose 36.7% in the reporting period compared to the first half of 2018, to EUR 4.7 million, while the profit from this business was EUR 0.4 million.
