WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., March 19, 2024-- Comvest Partners (“Comvest”), a leading middle-market private equity and credit investment firm, today announced the final close of its sixth flagship private equity fund, Comvest Investment Partners VI, L.P. (“CIP VI”, or the “Fund”), with total capital commitments of $881 million.

“We appreciate the strong reception CIP VI received from new and existing investors,” said Michael Falk, Comvest’s founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe our successful fundraise reflects Comvest’s deep experience in the middle market, our nearly 25-year history of delivering results for our investors, and the strength of our private equity strategy. We are grateful for the continued confidence our investors have placed in us and remain committed to meeting that trust.”

Comvest’s private equity strategy integrates specialized investment, industry and operational expertise with the principles of partnership and collaboration to help company founders and management teams scale their businesses, heighten operational performance and drive value creation to realize their full potential.

CIP VI received commitments from a diverse global investor group that includes foundations, insurance companies, pension funds, asset managers, consultants and family offices.

The Fund seeks to deploy up to $150 million of equity per investment in targeted industries including consumer, healthcare services, infrastructure and field services and professional and managed services.
