Alpha Future Fund
Zurich-based Alpha Associates has launched the Alpha Future Fund in the first quarter of 2020 with the support of the Pro Zukunftsfonds Schweiz foundation, which also laid extensive groundwork for the project. The Alpha Future Fund is a broadly diversified venture capital fund (aimed at Europe, and at Switzerland in particular) whose primary objective is to achieve an appealing rate of return (around 15% p.a.) by selecting Europe’s best venture capital managers, providing access to them and incorporating funds from co-investments and secondaries.
It focuses on energy and clean technology, new materials, nanotechnology, IT and robotics, biotechnology and life sciences, plus medical technology. Within these sectors, individual VC managers make their investments in companies that are in their growth phase (scaleups).
Located in Zurich, Alpha Associates is an independent management company that handles private equity, venture capital, infrastructure and private debt programmes for institutional customers. Through its experienced VC investment team, the company has been investing in VC funds and co-investments across the world for almost 20 years now, and its proven selection and management process has enabled it to generate a highly attractive, risk-adjusted rate of return for its institutional investors.
The Alpha Future Fund has a Luxembourg S.C.Sp. SICAV-RAIF structure, which provides the best possible conditions for meeting the needs of investors.
