Hamilton Lane announced on January 4, 2023 the final closing of Hamilton Lane Equity Opportunities Fund V (“the Fund”). The Fund closed with approximately $2.1 billion in total commitments from a wide range of global investors including public pensions, sovereign wealth funds, Taft-Hartley pension plans, endowments, foundations, high-net-worth individuals and other financial institutions.

Elvinger Hoss Prussen acted as Luxembourg legal counsel to Hamilton Lane as to matters of Luxembourg law in the establishment of Equity Opportunities Fund V Parallel Sub-Fund, a sub-fund of Hamilton Lane European Investors SCA SICAV-RAIF and a parallel fund to the Fund.

The Fund represents the fifth dedicated vehicle of its kind and is the largest to-date. Its strategy is focused on providing investors with diversified exposure to unique and differentiated deals through an efficient fee structure. Including the Fund, Hamilton Lane’s Direct Equity platform has raised approximately $3.7 billion since the outset of the fundraise in mid-2020.
