Pre-MBA Private Equity Associate, Morgan Stanley Energy Partners
Houston , Texas
January 30, 2017
Morgan Stanley has a proven long-term track record of success in private equity investing. Since 1985, Morgan Stanley has invested over $7 billion in private equity transactions across a broad spectrum of industries, including over $1.5 billion in the energy sector since 1992.

Morgan Stanley Energy Partners ("MSEP") is the Firm's primary business for investing in energy private equity transactions. MSEP has a dedicated team of highly experienced investment professionals located in New York and Houston and seeks the most attractive middle market investment opportunities in the upstream, midstream, and services & equipment subsectors of the energy industry. Our investment team brings significant expertise in structuring complex financial transactions and a commitment to partnering with world-class management teams. Our transactions are often characterized by an initial buyout in partnership with management that establishes a strategic platform for the deployment of additional capital through follow-on investments that fund organic growth and M&A activity. Morgan Stanley's extensive business relationships and global network of resources afford both our private equity team and our portfolio companies unparalleled access to leading corporations and executive talent.

The MSEP investment team focuses on investments in North America, typically investing $50 million to $250 million of equity capital per transaction. Investments include leveraged buyouts for control, corporate carve-outs, growth equity investments, and recapitalizations.
