The FINANCIAL -- Morgan Stanley Investment Management announced on March 19 that it has completed the acquisition of Mesa West Capital, LLC, one of the leading U.S. commercial real estate credit platforms.
The acquisition adds Mesa West’s premier platform to MSIM’s existing investment strategies and product offerings across real assets and private credit. Mesa West will retain its brand and operate as a separate business unit within MSIM’s Real Assets group, which currently manages $48 billion of client assets. Mesa West’s headquarters will remain in Los Angeles and the senior management team, led by Co-Founders Jeff Friedman and Mark Zytko, will continue to manage the business on a day-to-day basis, according to Morgan Stanley.
The addition of Mesa West underscores MSIM’s commitment to providing clients with a full suite of high-conviction investment solutions and delivering differentiated value across the public and private markets.
