Healthcare Focused Private Equity Firm ARCHIMED Closes Second Fund, at €315M




ARCHIMED, a Lyon, France-based investment firm focused on healthcare, closed its second fund, at €315m.

The Med II Fund went through a four-month fundraising campaign with LPs including nearly 30 investors such as endowments, foundations, funds-of-funds, family offices, banks, insurers and sovereign wealth funds investors, mainly from the United States and Europe.

Formed in 2014 by former 3i Healthcare leaders, ARCHIMED is a lower midmarket private equity firm focused exclusively on healthcare investments, engaging in both unleveraged growth investments and leveraged buyouts. It invests between €5m and €50m per transaction in all healthcare sectors, including Medtech, Biopharma, Care Services and Preventive Healthcare.

Led by Denis Ribon, Vincent Guillaumot, Robin Filmer-Wilson, Loïc Kubitza and operating partner Christoph Böhmer, ARCHIMED is currently the reference shareholder of Swiss-Italian company Medistream, French firms Polyplus and Fytexia, British firms Deallus and RehabWorks, Italian-French company Micromed and Italian company Primo. The inaugural Med I fund raised €150m.
