Private Equity Investing at Morgan Stanley


Morgan Stanley has a long and successful history of private equity investing. Since 1985, the Firm has invested over $6 billion in private equity transactions on a global basis. In 1993, the Firm augmented its private equity presence by launching Morgan Stanley Private Equity Asia, focusing on private equity transactions in the Asia-Pacific region.

The current private equity business, headed by Stephen Trevor and Alan Jones, is the Firm’s primary business for investing in large and middle-market private equity transactions, globally. Our team of investment professionals brings significant expertise in structuring complex financial transactions and a dedication to partnering with entrepreneurial management teams, corporations, and sponsors. With offices in New York, London, Hong Kong, Seoul, and Tokyo, we seek out the most attractive investment opportunities around the world and combine a global approach with in-depth local market and industry knowledge. Morgan Stanley’s extensive business relationships and global network of resources afford both our private equity team and our portfolio companies unparalleled access to leading corporations and management teams.
