King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) has advised Miura Private Equity on the launch of Frutas, a new fund directed at the European agrifood sector. The €350 million vehicle is the first agrifood fund formed in Spain and the largest in Europe with this investment strategy. 

The team of KWM lawyers who participated in advising Miura was led by partner Isabel Rodríguez, with assistance from partner Ildefonso Alier and associates María Mata and Patricia Martínez.

According to Isabel Rodríguez, "in recent years we have seen how the agrifood sector has positioned itself as one of the most attractive for investments from private equity funds. This is not only a trend seen in Spain, but throughout Europe, and which will undoubtedly play an important role in the modernisation and internationalisation of the sector."

Previously, KWM advised Miura Private Equity on the structuring and close of its third fund, Miura Fund III, with investment commitments of €330 million.

Miura is a leading investment firm in Spain headquartered in Barcelona. The firm currently manages assets with a total value of nearly €1000 million. The firm specialises in the investment of Spanish companies with attractive growth and consolidation plans and a clear international objective. Since 2008, Miura has invested in more than 35 businesses, with operations valued at more than €1500 million.
