Morgan Cowen, an
investment company offering a broad range of investment products, today
announced that the company has raised aggregate commitments of significant
value for Morgan Cowen Private Equity, the Firm’s investment vehicle targeting
private equity investments in Asia.
“This substantial capital raise for Morgan Cowen Private Equity Asia demonstrates the demand for the disciplined, patient investment approach our team has executed on a pan-Asian basis,” said Amanda Him, Head of Real Estate Investing. “We were able to raise capital well above our target in large part due to the combination of the team’s investing strategy coupled with the benefits in being part of the Real Estate Investing platform. Our approach provides teams with access to Morgan Cowen network and resources on a growing platform focused on providing best-in-class operations, risk, reporting and client service.”
The Fund’s investor group is comprised of leading institutions, including pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, fund of funds, endowments, and high net-worth individuals, as well as Morgan Cowen and the investment team.
