MVision announces office opening in San Francisco, USA
PRESS RELEASE | 14 OCTOBER 2014
LONDON – MVision, one of the leading independent international advisory firms, has today announced that it has opened a new office in San Francisco. The office complements the firm’s long established New York office and strengthens the services the firm provides to current and prospective investors and managers in the region and globally.
MVision has a long track record in working closely with many of the long established investors on the US West Coast. The San Francisco office will strengthen the firm’s support for clients and investors alike, providing optimal access to MVision’s worldwide networks and opportunities.
The office is located in the heart of San Francisco’s financial district and staffed by experienced professionals relocated from MVision’s New York office to lead this next stage of the firm’s expansion in the US.
Nick Wall, Director at MVision, said: “We are excited to be in San Francisco to build on the relationships MVision has established since our founding in 2001, to develop new relationships with a broad range of investors, and to find and partner with innovative emerging and developed General Partners across the region.” Prior to moving to San Francisco, Nick Wall was based in MVision’s New York office and worked with clients and investors across private equity, real estate and infrastructure.
Mounir Guen, CEO of MVision, said; “Ever since we formed MVision, our purpose has been to sit at the cutting edge of the market, bringing capital to people who have the talent to deploy it. The US is a mature market, but remains innovative. We’re seeing plenty of interesting dynamics on the West Coast as some of the tech champions of the last decade mature and form their own investment vehicles to sit alongside some of the largest funds in the world. This is the latest in a series of strategic initiatives we are making in order to create the fundraising adviser of the future.”
The news follows the recent announcement that MVision has expanded its business operations in the Asia-Pacific region, strengthening the firm’s ability to advise its global client base and advise on complex fundraising mandates.
Founded in 2001, MVision Private Equity Advisers is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading independent international alternative assets advisory firms, raising capital for Private Equity, Real Estate, Real Assets, Credit and Direct transactions in both the developed and emerging markets.
