TwinFocus Capital Partners has established a private equity advisory unit and hired Havard Management Company alumnus Orlando Mendoza to head it.

Mendoza, who takes the title of managing director, will work out of the firm's Boston office overseeing the new unit which focuses on co-investment opportunities.

Mendoza was previously a vice president for Harvard Management, conducting private equity diligence for the external management portfolio. Prior to Harvard, Mendoza was a principal with Edison Ventures (expansion stage), where he was involved in over 20 direct investments.

“With his impressive background, Orlando delivers the ideal combination of deep investment experience and an established industry network to his new role with TwinFocus Equity Partners,” said Paul Karger, TwinFocus managing partner, in a statement. “We look forward to offering customized investment programs to institutional clients to meet their specific objectives.”

TwinFocus Capital Partners, with $2.0 billion under advisement, delivers bespoke financial solutions to institutions, family offices and individuals worldwide.
