PEI Readers Name HarbourVest the North American Fund of Funds of the Year
20 March 2014
HarbourVest Partners, LLC (“HarbourVest” or the “Firm”) is pleased to announce that the readers of Private Equity International have once again voted HarbourVest the North American Fund of Funds of the Year, Asia Secondaries Firm of the Year, and the #2 Firm of the Year in MENA.
The editors of Private Equity International recognized HarbourVest’s successful and oversubscribed close of Dover Street VIII (a global secondary fund), as well as the acquisition of a portfolio of assets from Credit Suisse Private Equity Asia Partners. HarbourVest’s reputation in MENA was elevated by our partnership with Lagoon Capital in 2013.
We are very pleased to earn the respect and admiration of our peers once again. HarbourVest’s 30+ years of investing in private equity and our seasoned team of more than 80 investment professionals rank the firm among the most experienced in the industry.
