Frankfurt am Main, 17th of March 2021 - As of June 1, Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) will strengthen its management team with the addition of Julian Kappus, who was most recently responsible for the sale of structured finance products in Continental Europe at Bank of America. During his previous employment, Mr. Kappus worked closely with insurance companies, pension funds, and asset managers on their purchases and sales of alternative investments. He therefore has a deep understanding of the institutional investor landscape in the DACH region, which today already represents a significant and further growing part of LP commitments in venture capital. Furthermore, Mr. Kappus has previously co-founded a Berlin-based investor network and has extensive investment experience as a business angel.

Mr. Kappus represents an excellent addition to the existing management team around Falk Schäfers and will further enhance the profile of Heliad Equity Partners in the capital markets. Together, the management team combines the necessary skills to identify and pursue the most attractive investment opportunities in the current market environment, to help further develop the existing company portfolio, and to continue the current, ambitious growth trajectory.

With the expansion of the management team, Heliad Equity Partners is therefore continuing the strategic realignment that began in 2021 and is taking the next major step towards becoming one of the leading listed venture and growth investors in Germany.

"We are currently seeing an unprecedented quality of technology companies in the European start-up ecosystem, which have become an integral part of our economy and society. A major trend is that these companies are staying private longer and hence most of the value creation is realized pre-IPO and by selected investor groups only. In May 2021 Heliad has started investing in later-stage technology companies with proven product-market fit. As a listed evergreen fund, we close the gap between private and public capital markets and enable a broad group of investors to participate in private market returns with an appropriate risk-reward profile and by investing in a liquid stock. We are excited that Julian has decided to join us to realize this vision. His experience complements the team in the best possible way, and we are convinced that we will develop Heliad into a leading venture and growth investor in Europe" says Falk Schäfers, CEO of Heliad.

"Heliad's pre-IPO investment expertise, combined with the ambitious growth plans that have been pursued by Falk Schäfers and his team since 2021, have excited me from the very beginning. I am looking forward to contributing to Heliad's further successful development and to provide institutional and individual investors with access to the fast-growing venture capital market," Julian Kappus adds.
