Harken Capital Securities LLC (“Harken”), a provider of private equity fund placement and secondary advisory services, announced today that Peter Landauer and Jeffery Moy have joined the firm as Managing Directors.
Peter Landauer joins Harken after 12 years at the University of Florida Investment Corporation, where he oversaw a portfolio of 125 funds and $1.2 billion of committed capital across private equity, natural resources, and real estate as Director of Private Investments. He previously served as Director of Real Assets and as Chief Operating Officer. “Harken is a natural fit for me,” Peter commented. “I am passionate about finding smaller private equity and real asset fund managers that have a competitive advantage, and Harken specializes in this area.”
Jeffery Moy comes to Harken with over 20 years of investing experience, most recently as Head of Private Equity for Central Park Group, a pioneer in bringing alternative investments to smaller institutions and high net worth individuals. He previously served as Head of Private Equity at Rockefeller & Company and as a Senior Managing Director at Liberty Mutual. In aggregate, he has managed over $5 billion in commitments in more than 300 funds. “I’ve had relationships on both the primary and secondary sides of Harken for many years,” said Jeff. “I have seen the quality of Harken’s offerings and truly believe our niche is underserved.”
Both Peter and Jeff bring a wealth of manager selection experience to Harken. This perspective dovetails nicely with the Harken founders’ background as general partners as in-house fundraisers at emerging manager funds. “Harken serves limited partners by representing well-vetted, capable general partners who have proven strategies, and Jeff and Peter are a critical part of that effort,” said Harken co-founder Fred Malloy. “We value the deep relationships with general partners and limited partners that Peter and Jeff bring to our firm,” said Harkin co-founder Don Nelson. “They will help us continue to find and successfully represent strong managers.”
