The Danish private equity fund Blue Equity III, which invests in small and mid-sized firms, is now closed to new investors after Denmark's largest commercial pension fund PFA has invested DKK 100m (EUR 13.5m) in the fund. Commitments totaling DKK 750m (EUR 100.9m) have also been given from several different investors, reports Danish business media Finans.
