Keensight Capital expands its global presence with the opening of a North American office
Keensight Capital, one of the leading private equity managers dedicated to pan-European Growth Buyout investments, announces the opening of a Boston, Massachusetts office to expand its international offering in North America.
This strategic expansion represents a significant milestone for the firm, as it establishes a physical presence in the United States and reinforces the firm’s commitment to supporting the growth of its portfolio companies in the North American region.
Boston is renowned as an international financial center, with thriving hubs in the Technology and Healthcare industries, and an entrepreneurial spirit supported by the presence of world-leading universities. The city’s strategic location in the Northeast of the US also helps ensure that connectivity with Europe remains strong, extending Keensight’s footprint in London and Paris, in a seamless way.
The local team of talented professionals will bring a broad array of skills and experience, including finance, strategy, business development, and market insight. This US-based team will work closely with Keensight’s global network, leveraging the firm’s resources and expertise, to identify and execute on compelling opportunities for Keensight’s portfolio companies. Such opportunities could include organic as well as inorganic growth.
Jean-Michel Beghin, Managing Partner of Keensight Capital, said: “North America has always been an important market for our portfolio companies, and we have a long track record of helping our businesses expand there. Now, with a physical presence, we will be even better positioned to provide the tailor-made support that our companies need. Boston is an excellent location for this effort, and we are delighted to be opening a Keensight office there.”
 Growth Buyout: investment in profitable, private companies experiencing strong growth, in minority or majority positions, with or without leverage, using a flexible approach tailored to the needs of individual entrepreneurs, in order to finance organic growth projects, acquisition strategies or provide historic shareholders with liquidity.
