Wyniecki will provide strategic direction and oversight of Idinvest's Growth Capital Fund II, which recently held its first close at €250 million, the company said in a statement. He joined the firm in November 2016. We are very much looking forward to Alban joining the Growth team here at Idinvest, says Benoist Grossmann, managing partner at Idinvest, in the statement. We are currently seeing a good amount of opportunity for European companies looking to scale-up, particularly in the tech sector and where Alban brings a huge amount of expertise. Based in Paris and founded under the name AGF Private Equity in 1997, Idinvest was formerly part of Allianz until 2010 when it joined forces with IDI as an independent firm. The company manages more than €7 billion in assets deployed into mid-market European primary, secondary and mezzanine investments.
