San Francisco-based private equity fund of funds Horsley Bridge Partners has hired Du Chai as a managing director and member of the investment team.
Chai comes to HBP from Northwestern University, where he spent 10 years co-managing over $2.5 billion in alternative assets, including venture capital and buyout fund investments. While at Northwestern, Chai was integral in developing the university’s private equity emerging markets strategy, specifically in China. Chai joined Northwestern University in 2001 after obtaining an MBA from Kellogg School of Management and a B.A. in economics from Northwestern. Du also spent five years at J.P. Morgan & Company.
“I am very excited to join the Horsley Bridge team,” said Chai. “During my career at Northwestern, I was fortunate to work with an incredible team and to develop great relationships with high caliber venture capital and private equity funds. I am really looking forward to continuing many of the relationships I’ve developed with GPs over the past decade and to working with HBP’s team and clients.”
HBP invests in venture capital, growth and smaller buyout partnerships throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, and other emerging markets. Founded in 1983, Horsley Bridge currently manages approximately $12 billion in committed capital for its institutional clients worldwide.
