Morgan Stanley Investment Management Inc. raised more than $1.4 billion for a private investment fund, North Haven Tactical Value Fund LP.
The fund aims to invest in private, long-term and illiquid opportunities identified primarily by the global Morgan Stanley network across various asset classes, sectors and geographies. Reuters reported in July 2017 that Morgan Stanley was looking to raise $500 million for a private equity-style fund that would invest in nontraditional assets.
The fund will seek deals ranging from about $50 million to $200 million in private equity, debt or hybrid securities, Bloomberg News reported, citing Morgan Stanley Investment Management's head of private credit and equity, David Miller. About two-thirds of the fund's investments could come from within Morgan Stanley capital markets, wealth management and asset management divisions. Morgan Stanley will also invest in the fund, deploying as much as 3% of its own capital, which the report said is permissible under the Volcker guidelines.
The fund will be led by Thomas Cahill and Pedro Teixeira, co-heads of Morgan Stanley Tactical Value Investing, Bloomberg noted.
