About us

Invest Europe governance


Invest Europe represents the European private equity industry, from venture capital to the largest private equity firms, as well as investors including 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 – Limited Partner, Venture Capital, Mid-Market and Global Private Equity – each dedicated to supporting a specific member group.

The Platforms are led by a Council composed of industry practitioners elected by the membership. The Platform Chair is elected from amongst the 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 the 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, which report to the Platforms and Board of Directors.

The Invest Europe Articles of the Association are the legal foundation of Invest Europe, setting out the structure, activities and composition of the association.

The Invest Europe Internal Governance Handbook, meanwhile, lays out the governance of Invest Europe structures and includes all matters that remain unsettled by the law or statutes. It also defines the role and goals of each entity of Invest Europe.
