Investment in SouthBridge Europe Mezzanine II SICAR

We have acted as legal advisors of the Hellenic Development Bank of Investments in relation to its participation, as an institutional investor, to SouthBridge Europe Mezzanine II SICAR, a fund launched in 2021, providing flexible financing to growth stage small and medium - sized enterprises (SMEs) and lower-mid market companies in Greece to improve operations and build lasting value, with the ultimate goal of producing superior investment returns to its investors. Other institutional investors (including EBRD and EIF), as well as private investors, participated in the financing round.

HDBI investments are expected to boost entrepreneurship through the injection (together with private investors) of more than €1bn of invested capital to the renewable energy production and technology, energy conservation infrastructure, sustainable development and circular economy, with significant economic and environmental benefits for Greece.
