HarbourVest to open Tokyo office


HarbourVest Partners, a private equity fund of funds headquartered in Boston, will soon open a Tokyo office headed by Tatsuya Kubo, an alternative investment manager for Fortress Investment Group in Japan, according to reports.

The firm set up a Hong Kong office 14 years ago and the new base will be its second in Asia.

HarbourVest most recently appointed former SVG Advisers executive Simon Lund to boost its investor relationship building capabilities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

In its 28-year history HarbourVest has committed more than $20bn to private equity funds, $6bn to secondary purchases and $4bn to co-investments.
