Jake Stuiver has joined William Blair’s New York office to work on complex limited partner-led secondary transactions.
He brings a decade of secondary advisory experience and has advised on over $12 billion of LP-led secondaries, most recently working at M2O, where he led the firm’s LP secondary practice. Prior to M20 he spent seven years at Evercore. He has been focused on all aspects of alternative investment secondary transactions, including deal origination, lead management, bid development, LP alignment in GP-led sales, sales, distributions and final execution.
“Jake’s addition to our group brings an entrepreneurial, LP-led advisory veteran, further supporting the growth of our platform and allowing us to continue to expand our delivery of world-class private capital advisory to our clients,” said Mike Custar, William Blair’s head of private capital advisory, in a statement.
Head of William Blair’s financial sponsors group Brandon Lower said that Stuiver brings a robust network of buyer, GP and LP relationships.
William Blair launched its private capital advisory practice earlier this year and has built its team and suite of private capital advisory solutions.
“I’m honored to join the private capital advisory group, a scalable, diverse, and integrated platform within William Blair’s global footprint,” said Stuiver. “The group’s delivery of comprehensive secondary guidance has quickly emerged as a specialized market-leader.”
