Invest Europe governance

Invest Europe represents the European private equity industry, from venture capital-backed start-ups to the largest private equity firms and investors such as insurers, family offices and pension funds.

Invest Europe is committed to fully and fairly representing the interests of each segment of our membership. To achieve this, members are organised into four Platforms, dedicated to supporting a specific member group i.e. Limited Partner, Venture Capital, Mid-market and Large Buyout.

The Platforms are led by a Council composed of industry practitioners, elected by the membership. The Platform Chairman is elected among members of the Council and is ultimately responsible for delivering the Platform action plan and ensuring that the Platform best represents its sector and membership. Each Platform also puts forward up to two representatives to the Public Affairs Executive.

The Platforms are overseen by Invest Europe Board of Directors, which supersedes individual platforms on issues concerning the industry as a whole.

In addition, Invest Europe’s Platforms steer a number of committees and task forces, also composed of industry practitioners and reporting to the Platforms and Board of Director.
