Berkshire Global Advisors acted as financial advisor to MBK Partners
MBK Partners is the largest independent North Asian private equity firm focused exclusively on the North Asia markets – China, Japan and Korea. The firm has over $25.6 billion in capital under management and has offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. MBK Partners invests in industry-leading companies and, in partnership with management, grows and creates value in its portfolio companies.
Dyal Capital, founded in 2010, is a leading capital provider to institutional private equity and hedge fund managers through minority investments and long-term financing. The firm has deep and extensive relationships across the alternative asset management ecosystem and a proven track record, having completed 57 transactions with 49 GPs to date. As of November 30, 2020, Dyal has a large permanent capital base totaling $23.3 billion in assets under management.
The partnership will allow MBK, a traditionally North Asia-focused firm, to expand its investment base beyond South Korea, China and Japan, while fueling its expansion in the immediate region. MBK is also seeking to expand in real estate and growth capital investing beyond private equity and special situations, which it can readily pursue with the transaction proceeds and with support from Dyal’s senior team and broad infrastructure.
