Anima Alternative 1

Our first fund, Anima Alternative 1 forms the starting point for a platform of Italian alternative funds.

Operational since mid-2020, Anima Alternative launched its first fund at the beginning of 2021, Anima Alternative 1, attracting funds that have exceeded the target of 150 million euros.

It is a closed-end direct lending fund governed by Italian law, reserved for professional investors investing primarily in debt instruments (senior debt, unitranche/2nd lien and mezzanine debt), with around 20% invested in minority shareholdings.

A flexible approach

Anima Alternative 1 targets Italian companies, both SMEs and small-mid caps (up to 500 employees) and mid-caps (up to 3,000 employees) with a turnover not exceeding €500 million.

With a wide range of available financial instruments, Anima Alternative 1 will be able to offer tailored and flexible solutions for the long-term financing or capital strengthening of target companies, investing between €7 and €20 million in a small group of carefully selected companies.
