PeakBridge Growth Fund II has announced its official closure valued at $187 million, pushing its total assets under management to over $250 million. Headquarted in Luxembourg, PeakBridge’s focus is on scalable and sustainable technologies across the agri-food chain, aiming to support businesses that can demonstrate positive long-term impact on global food systems, health and the planet.

Together with strong industry partnerships, we’re positioned to confront those real-world problems.” PeakBridge is a member of the Edmond de Rothschild Private Equity partnership.
