DVI-II will hold a first closing of €200m and will target up to 20 investments in funds in the next 4 to 5 years.
After the first closing in March 2016, fundraising will continue with other institutional investors aiming to reach a final size of €300m.

The contribution of PPM Oost to DVI-II is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Netherlands Investment Agency (NIA).
