Arnerich Massena Manager 3×5 Partners Featured in The Wall Street Journal Pro

“After years of quietly building a well-performing portfolio of sustainability and life sciences companies, 3×5 Partners is expanding through new fundraising and a larger team.” Journalist Yuliya Chernova’s Wall Street Journal Pro article “Sustainability, Life Sciences Investor 3×5 Doubles Team Amid Fundraising” examines the history of 3×5 Partners, which was spun out of Arnerich Massena in 2011 as a solution for Arnerich Massena clients to access impact-related private investments. Since that time, 3×5 Partners has evolved as its own stand-alone private equity fund, ranked in the top quartile of all private equity funds in the country. In the article, Chernova notes the company’s remarkable performance: “3×5 is a rare sustainability-focused firm with strong returns.” The article announces the newest additions to the 3×5 Partners team: David Yeh, formerly a senior adviser with the Obama administration, helping to lead infrastructure and energy policy, and Joe Biller, a partner in Sightline Partners, a Minneapolis-based medical technology-focused private equity firm. 3x 5 Partners is currently seeking to raise $125 million for its third fund.
