Morgan Stanley has appointed Brian Magnus co-head of its private equity business in Europe, to work with recent hired Graham Keniston-Cooper. Magnus is currently head of U.K. investment banking for Morgan Stanley. 

Magnus and Keniston-Cooper will work together to build a private equity team based in London and establish Morgan Stanley’s European private equity business for third-party investors.  They will focus on direct investments, joint ventures, leveraged buyouts and fund investments in Europe and report to Stephen Trevor and Alan Jones, global co-heads of Morgan Stanley Private Equity.

“Brian is one of Morgan Stanley’s most experienced bankers in Europe with deep knowledge of our platform,” said Trevor.  “We believe that his experience will be the perfect complement to Graham’s long track record of private equity investing and will deliver success in our European private equity business.”
