Allegro’s Tenth Birthday

Allegro turns ten this month. We couldn’t have done it without You!

We’d like to acknowledge and thank the many supporters who have contributed over the past 10 years to our established position as transformational experts in the private equity space.

Looking back over the decade there is plenty that we’re proud of. Allegro, launched in 2008, and Fund I was followed by our second fund in 2015, closing on $180 million of equity and making successful investments in nine companies in Australia and New Zealand. We closed Fund III in December 2017 and we’re currently investing approximately $400 million in committed capital from local and international investors.

Allegro lives by its purpose – WE BELIEVE IN BETTER, consequently our focus remains on transformation and operational improvement. We have a unique hands on approach that has resulted in the successful management of more than $1 billion of FUM, maximising returns for our investors.

Finally, we acknowledge and sincerely thank everyone who has contributed to our success, including our world-class investors, high-calibre employees (and their families!), operating partners, portfolio companies and trusted advisors.

We look forward to many more years of continued growth and above average returns.

Thank you.
Adrian and Chester – Allegro Funds
