SwanCap was established as an independent investment platform by the senior professionals of the former UniCredit private equity unit in 2013. The same year the SwanCap team raised €1 billion of new third party capital followed by further fundraisings in the subsequent years. Today, UniCredit is a non-controlling shareholder in the advisory company of SwanCap and SwanCap is the preferred partner for UniCredit in private equity-related investment strategies.
